"To mark the 90th birthday of the eminent scholar and historian Professor Emeritus Janos Bak, CEU’s Department of Medieval Studies crowdfunded a fellowship for early- and mid-career researchers. More than 80 individuals worldwide donated over US$35,000 to the Janos M. Bak Research Fellowship on Medieval Central Europe, testament to Bak’s impact on former students and medieval studies colleagues alike..."

CEU thanks all the donors to the fellowship fund established in Professor Bak’s honor. Those wishing to contribute to the furtherance of the Janos Bak Fellowship can find details on how to do so here.

In 2019 the János M. Bak Research Fellowship on Medieval Central Europe was granted to Mykhaylo Yakubovych.
