Awarded by the Central European Initiative (CEI), a platform for regional cooperation, and the Slovene Writers’ Association, the CEI Fellowship is aimed at fostering international cooperation and stimulating young authors from the 17 CEI member states.

An award of 5,000 EUR enables recipients to partake in a three-month residence in any CEI member state of the candidate's choice. Applicants should be young authors up to 35 years of age from non-EU CEI countries (Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, and Ukraine).

The call for applications is published on the CEI and Slovene Writers’ Association websites (deadline in April). The winner of the fellowship is selected by an international jury and invited as a special guest to the Vilenica International Literary Festival taking place in Slovenia in September. The fellowship is awarded at the opening ceremony of the festival. After completing the residency, the candidate is to submit a written report about his or her literary project.
