About NIAS Individual Fellowships
NIAS Fellowships are funded directly by NIAS through the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).
For more information on stipends and replacement subsidies and an overview of all the facilities offered to a NIAS Fellow see "What NIAS Offers".
Applications are evaluated on the basis of originality, quality and relevance of the project proposal. Scholarly achievements, grants, awards and publication record are also taken into consideration in the selection process.
All correctly submitted applications are screened for eligibility by the rector and the head of academic affairs. Only applications with a reasonable chance of success will, subsequently, be sent to external independent reviewers. Applicants who do not have a feasible chance of success are notified by email that NIAS does not intend sending their application to external reviewers for evaluation. Applicants can object to this decision by email. On the basis of the arguments given by the applicant, NIAS will decide whether or not to reconsider.
NIAS identifies high and low quality applications with the help of the external reviewers’ reports. The final decision on which applicants to invite for a NIAS Fellowship is made by the rector. The aim is to form a diverse but coherent research group that consists of fellows from different disciplinary backgrounds, seniority, gender and geographical origin.
