The General Fellowship Programme

About the Programme and the Eligibility Criteria
The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) offers a General Residential Fellowship Programme
open to scholars from all countries. The programme gives fellows the opportunity to concentrate on their
own research interests, free from the teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life.
Fellows are, however, expected to be active members of the scholarly community of the Collegium and
to participate in seminars and academic events beyond their own fields of specialization.

At the time of application, the candidate must have held a PhD (or equivalent degree) for at least three years.
Early career scholars must have a promising track record of independent achievements beyond the post-
doctoral level, including significant publications, and be active in international fora.

Senior candidates (those who have held a PhD for at least ten years) must have demonstrated a track record
of significant and original research achievements over a sequence of years and be active at the international
forefront of their research fields.

Scholars may apply for a full academic year or one semester.

Stipends
Fellows receive a monthly stipend or salary, the size of which will be decided after consultation with the fellow
and a consideration of relevant circumstances. Applicants may want to consider seeking additional financial
support from other sources, such as sabbatical leave. The Collegium will provide and pay for accommodation
for fellows who do not live in the Stockholm–Uppsala region.

Application and Deadline
Applications are reviewed by the Collegium three times a year. In conjunction with these reviews, applications
may be sent to external referees. Final decisions are taken by the Principal of the Collegium in consultation with
a selection committee composed of Permanent and Long-term Fellows and one or two other members, currently
Professor Erika Fischer-Lichte, Freie Universität Berlin. This means that all applications (including personal data)
will be downloaded by members of the selection committee, and may also be sent to external referees, outside of
the EU/EEA.

Applications may be submitted two to three years in advance of the period for which candidates wish to come.
However, the deadline for the academic year 2020/21 is on 1 July 2019.

If you wish to apply, please submit the following:
1.  The completed application form: Application Form (PDF file. When the file opens, save it on your computer. You can then complete the application form on your computer and e-mail it to us as an attachment)
2.  A curriculum vitae (4 pages maximum)
