NIAS offers individual fellowships to scholars who wish to carry out independent research in the humanities and the social sciences. For five or ten months, scholars are offered time and space to work on their own research project as part of an interdisciplinary community.
Each year, NIAS awards around 30 fellows with a NIAS Individual Fellowship. This Fellowship allows scholars to come to Amsterdam and become a member of a diverse, interdisciplinary collaborative learning community where one can challenge boundaries, explore detours and get new perspectives. Fellows can apply for a stipend or Dutch University Grant, commuting travel expenses for daily commute or subsidized accommodation in Amsterdam. The Fellowship call is open from 15 January until 15 March.
