Visiting Fellowship Scheme

Each year the IHSS and academic Schools within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences host a number of Visiting Fellows (VF) for between one and four weeks. The aim of the scheme is to support international research by hosting leading scholar from outside the UK who are undertaking innovative interdisciplinary work. The Institute is particularly keen to attract Visiting Fellows from low and medium-income countries.

IHSS VF scholars interact with and enhance the intellectual community within the Faculty. Entry to the scheme is by nomination from Schools within the Faculty. Funding covers the costs of the Fellow’s on-campus accommodation during the period of residency. The travel costs of two Fellows from low/medium income countries will also be covered.

Check out the List of Current Visiting Fellows.


The scheme's applications have closed. The awardees for 2024/25 will be announced in June 2024.

We hope to launch the new application round of the scheme in September or October 2024. To receive details about the launch, join the IHSS mailing list.
