The Golestan Fellowship is for researchers from the medical or biological sciences including clinical psychiatry. The fellowship is funded by a legacy from the late Prof. Dr. Med. Kenower Weimar Bash, a Swiss psychiatrist, who was a NIAS Fellow during the academic year 1973/74. The Golestan Foundation manages the estate.
Golestan Fellowships are available for non-Dutch scholars only. Successful applicants should be engaged in fundamental research in the medical or biological sciences and should have a specialization which would make it profitable for them to work in an international setting and be in daily contact with scholars who carry out advanced research in the humanities and social sciences. They should already have made a significant contribution to their field of research.

Professor Kenower Weimar Bash, a Swiss psychiatrist who had worked extensively in Iran, was a fellow at NIAS in 1973/74. On his death in 1986, Professor Bash left his estate to the NIAS Fellows' Association (NFA) and the Golestan Foundation was set up to administer his estate. His wished to fund a fellowship and install a Persian Garden in the grounds at NIAS in memory of his wife. Golestan is the Persian word for rose garden.
Prof. Med. Kenower Weimar Bash found his fellowship at NIAS in 1973/74 so fruitful that he wanted other researchers from abroad to benefit as he had. He left money in his will to encourage researchers from abroad to come to NIAS as fellows. The Golestan foundation was set up in 1991. It is managed by NIAS and overseen by the NIAS Fellows' Association (NFA).
