Fellowships and employment


The possibility of submitting proposals to the Researchers at Risk program ended on 28 April 2022. After this date, it is still possible to send proposals, however, their inclusion in the evaluation process and obtaining financial support is no longer guaranteed. Proposals received after this date will be sorted by date and time of delivery. 

In the case of the additional funds being released, it will be possible to gradually include these later adopted proposals in the evaluation process. 

In 2022 the priority of the fellowship was to support applicants from Ukraine, after which the programme will consider application from other countries where scientists are threatened by war or persecution.

In 2022, the CAS announced a call to support at least 50 Ukrainian researchers by the end of 2023. Researchers from all research fields are eligible, including scientists and PhD students, i. e., students in a PhD programme or its equivalent as well as postdoctoral fellows who have already completed a PhD programme or its equivalent. 

The proposal is exclusively submitted by individual CAS institutes which incorporate the applicant into their research team or a department. The applicant cannot directly apply for this programme. The applicant is required to contact the respective CAS Institute to make an application, either directly or indirectly, via Julie Řičářová ( 

Deadline for submission of application forms is 30 September 2022.
