The call for proposals was open from 8 January until 13 February 2018. We are honoured that as many as 252 scholars worldwide were interested in coming to work with us and we sincerely thank all the applicants. At the same time, the high number of submissions means that we were able to support only a small portion of all the many outstanding proposals.
Each year, we aim to invite a diverse cohort of fellows in terms of research topics, disciplines and countries of study, combining these considerations with the criteria of academic excellence and the potential of a mutually beneficial research visit. Given our ability to invite only a few of the many qualified applicants, we hope that many of those who submitted an application will consider this opportunity again in the coming years.
The call for visiting fellowships for 2019-2020 will open in early January 2019.
