NIAS Fellows Association

The NIAS Fellows Association, NFA, is the alumni organisation of NIAS. Its aim is to promote the optimum functioning of NIAS for the benefit of past, present, and future Fellows at NIAS and to promote the bonds between all those who have been associated with NIAS.

NIAS Fellows Association

The Association was founded in 1977. It organises the annual NFA Day to which all members are invited. The highlight of the NFA Day is the Uhlenbeck Lecture named after the founder of NIAS, Professor E.M. Uhlenbeck (1913-2003). It is delivered by one of the former NIAS Fellows.

The NFA also set up the NIAS Alumni Stay in 2018. These alumni stays allow for NFA members to return to the institute for a 2- or 3-week period in summer.

Currently, the NFA is exploring alumni chapter meetings in different countries. In 2019, the first satellite meeting was organised in New York.


The NFA currently has 1250 members. Membership is open only to (former) NIAS Fellows and Staff. The life-time membership fee is currently €100 for Fellows from universities in the Netherlands, and €75 for Fellows from universities abroad.
