War has never been far away, but the war in Ukraine has brought it palpably closer. If you are a scholar, writer, artist or journalist whose life is heavily influenced by the war in Ukraine - consider applying to the Safe Haven Fellowship.
It has been historically proven that a Safe Haven for scholars at risk is of great importance to the world at large. In February 1933, during a visit to the United States, Einstein knew he could not return to Germany due to the rise of the Nazis. His apartment in Berlin was repeatedly raided by the Gestapo. Fortunately, he was able to attend the first Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton. Supporting scholars at risk has been a tradition in many countries, beginning long before World War II. War has never been far away ever since, but the war in Ukraine has brought it palpably closer.
Scholars, artists, writers and journalists whose lives have been heavily influenced by the war in Ukraine are welcome to apply to the Safe Have Fellowship at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study. The fellowship is aimed mainly towards people with the Ukrainian nationality, but is also open for people with the Russian or Belarusian nationality. NIAS does not accept applicants affiliated to a Russian or Belarusian university or research institute, or any other institution that is boycotted.
