Open Call for NIAS Fellowship Applications 2017/18

The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) is now opening the annual call for fellowship applications. This is an opportunity for those who wish to spend a period of time during the academic year 2017/18 to conduct research as a part of the NIAS community.

Individual and Theme-Group Fellowships

There are two kinds of fellowships that can be applied for: Individual fellowships and Theme-Group fellowships. An individual fellowship is for scholars who wish to work on an individual project for 5 or 10 months. Theme-Group fellowships are for  scholars who wish to work together with colleagues on a particular theme. They consist of up to five scholars, half from the Netherlands, the other half from other countries.
