Yehuda Elkana Fellows

The Yehuda Elkana Fellowship Endowment Fund was established to provide support for outstanding young scholars pursuing a doctoral degree with a specialization in higher education policy at CEU. The Fellowship fully sustains the students during their graduate work at CEU, including their research, allowing them to concentrate entirely upon their studies.

The Elkana Center supports the work of the PhD Fellows by organizing academic events, inviting guest speakers, providing additional opportunities for professional networking, and offering help with the academic publication process.
