The Fellowship is tenable for a three to six month-period between 1 October 2022 and 31 July 2023. Extensions to the original period of the Fellowship may be possible but are subject to the same terms and will not attract any additional financial support beyond the amount originally offered.
What the Institute Offers
The Institute offers shared office accommodation with wifi, internet/email, photocopying facilities, and access to the Institute's Germanic Studies Library, the Senate House Library, and the libraries of other Institutes within the School of Advanced Study. Visiting Fellows are offered free access to the Institute's events and are expected to participate as much as possible in the intellectual life of the Institute.
What Visiting Fellows Do
Visiting Fellows contribute to and enhance the scholarly activity of the Institute and the School of Advanced Study. In addition to presenting current work as a seminar or as part of a larger conference or workshop, Fellows are invited to organise an event either during or resulting from their stay, or otherwise contribute to the work of the Institute. Fellows are also invited to place a recent, normally unpublished, piece of work in our open-access repository, SAS-Space, and to contribute to the Institute's blog, Living Languages. Publications resulting from research conducted during the tenure of the Fellowship must acknowledge the Institute and, where appropriate, a copy should be deposited in the Germanic Studies Library or with the Institute. At the conclusion of their stay, Fellows are required to write a short report on the progress they have made in their research.
The award made is intended to contribute to the costs of accommodation during the Fellow’s stay in London. Payment is made direct to the award holder’s bank account in two instalments, the first at the beginning of the tenure of the Fellowship, the second halfway through. Should the Fellow for any reason not take up the Fellowship, the funding must be immediately returned.
Living accommodation is not provided and Fellows should make their own arrangements. The University of London Accommodation office may be able to assist.
Fellows that do not have the right to reside and/or study in the UK will require a visa and must ascertain what category of visa is most suitable for them. You may be eligible to apply for a Standard Visitor Visa, which permits academics to visit for research purposes for periods of not more than six months.
