The Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies has a very competitive fellowship program. Each year we offer up to 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 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, 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 2020 application period begins on 17 August 2020 at 9 am and ends on 10 September 2020 at 4 pm local Helsinki time. The decision on the appointments will be announced in February 2021. We kindly ask that any inquiries and questions be addressed to hr-erla@helsinki.fi.
