Fellowships are open to any field of expertise. Previous fellows have included academics, novelists, scientists, poets, playwrights, independent researchers and journalists. Please note that if successful, we urge that you keep your scholarly commitments outside of JIAS to a minimum.
JIAS Writing Fellows enjoy a quiet space for work, reflection and academic community-building amidst the Melville Koppies of Johannesburg.
Each Writing Fellow will receive:
To apply, please submit a two-page proposal, a comprehensive CV, and referees should submit three letters of reference directly to email@example.com before 15 July 2020. Please note that reference letters should not be submitted by applicants themselves and incomplete applications will not be considered.
Please note that due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19, successful applications may be deferred or withdrawn due to travel restrictions.
