The European Institutes for Advanced Study (EURIAS) Fellowship Programme is an international researcher mobility programme offering 10-month residencies in one of the 16 participating Institutes: Berlin, Bologna, Budapest, Cambridge, Delmenhorst, Edinburgh, Freiburg, Helsinki, Jerusalem, Lyon, Marseille, Paris, Uppsala, Vienna, Wassenaar, Zürich.
The Institutes for Advanced Study support the focused, self-directed work of outstanding researchers. The fellows benefit from the finest intellectual and research conditions and from the stimulating environment of a multi-disciplinary and international community of first-rate scholars.
Supported by the European Commission since May 2009, the Programme's first call for applications was launched in June 2010. EURIAS offers 308 fellowships consisting of 10-month residencies over the 8-academic year period (2011-2019). The
programme is open to promising scholars at an early stage of their careers as well as established senior researchers.
The Helsingin Sanomat Foundation Fellowship supported research on media and the media industry. The funding covered five fellow positions in 2013–2018, each one academic year in length. The positions werre aimed at internationally known senior researchers and professors in the media and journalism studies.
Within each fellowship period the researcher worked with his/her project and participated in teaching and academic community within the field of media studies and journalism.
In addition to enhancing scholarly excellence in the human and social sciences, the Helsinki Collegium seeks to advance the interaction of science and art through special programs established on funding from foundations. As a result, it organised a program for translators, funded by the Alfred Kordelin Foundation. The aim of the translator program was to further the dialogue between scholarly research and artistic endeavour in its premises. Successful candidates had a long experience in either fiction or non-fiction translation and they work on a culturally significant project.
In 2011, the Helsinki Collegium launched a Writer Programme and invited one or two writers per academic year to work at the Collegium. The aim of the Writer Programme, funded by the Alfred Kordelin Foundation, was to reinforce interaction between research and art and to encourage dialogue between academic researchers and artists.
The Collegium solicited suggestions for fellowship recipients from its own fellows and cooperative partners, which included Finnish and international literary institutions and organizations, such as the cultural association Nuoren Voiman Liitto, FILI (Finnish Literature Exchange), the Goethe Institute Helsinki and Literarisches Colloquium Berlin.
