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.

Each co-sponsored fellowship has its own specific guidelines; some fellowships are awarded through an application process, but others are by nomination or invitation only.

NIAS makes every effort to ensure that the information on the webpages below is complete and accurate (read our disclaimer here). Nevertheless, errors may occur, especially as all co-sponsored fellowships have their own procedures. If you have any questions, please send an email to cosponsors@nias.knaw.nl.
