IIAS Call for Proposals for Individual Fellowships

Institut of Advanced Studies at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (IIAS) invites scholars from Israel and abroad to submit proposals for an individual fellowship at the IIAS for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Topics may cover any research area from any discipline and must seek to be innovative, with the potential to impact research in the field. Two or three scholars who collaborate on the same project should apply individually and state clearly that they wish to work together.

Fellows spend their residency at the IIAS, located at the Edmond J. Safra Givat Ram campus of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The IIAS provides Fellows with a nurturing and stimulating academic environment, as well as administrative support. Fellows from abroad receive a generous fellowship and subsidized accommodation.

Our expectation is that the fellow’s residency will result in creative and original research that can be shared with the international research community.
