What NIAS offers
General information about what NIAS has to offer, and what a fellowship entails.
NIAS Individual Fellowships
NIAS offers individual fellowships to scholars who wish to carry out advanced research in the humanities and the social sciences. For five or ten months, scholars are offered the time and space to work on a topic of their own choice. Both Dutch scholars and scholars from abroad can apply for an individual fellowship.
NIAS offers two types of theme-group fellowships for scholars of different backgrounds who wish to collaborate on a particular subject or theme: the NIAS Theme-group Fellowship and the NIAS-Lorentz Theme-group Fellowship.
Co-Sponsored Individual Fellowships
For scholars working in specific disciplines or research areas, NIAS cooperates with co-sponsoring partners to offer fellowships that reach specific disciplines or encourage and support a particular research goal.
