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.

Remuneration
Fellows receive a monthly salary. 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 for the academic year 2023/24 must be submitted electronically via the Varbi online application
system. The Varbi system will be open for applications between 1 March – 1 June 2022.

The deadline for application for the academic year 2023/24 is on 1 June 2022.

Final decisions are taken by the Principal of the Collegium in consultation with a selection committee composed
of Long-term Fellows. 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.
