The Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies has a very competitive fellowship program. Each year we offer 20–25 fellowships for researchers in different career stages both in Finland and abroad. Both junior postdoctoral researchers and more established senior scholars are welcome to apply, and distinguished scholars from outside Finland can be appointed by invitation.

Some of the fellowships at the HCAS are based on an open annual call whereas others are targeted specifically towards scholars with a particular research focus or who come from certain geographic areas. In addition, the HCAS promotes dialogue between art and research through the Kone Foundation postdoctoral fellowship in the arts.

You may find details about each funding program and instructions for applying to them under each individual heading below.

The fall 2019 Core Fellowship and Art Fellowship Calls open on August 23 (8 am) and close on September 13, 2019 (4 pm). Quick links to the instructions to applicants can be found here:
