SCAS General Residential Fellowship Programme in Uppsala

The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) offers a General Residential Fellowship Programme open to scholars from all countries. The programme gives fellows the opportunity to concentrate on their own research interests, free from the teaching and administrative obligations of ordinary university life. Fellows are, however, expected to be active members of the scholarly community of the Collegium and to participate in seminars and academic events beyond their own fields of specialization.

At the time of application, the candidate must have held a PhD (or equivalent degree) for at least three years.

Early career scholars must have a promising track record of independent achievements beyond the post-doctoral level, including significant publications, and be active in international fora.

Senior candidates (those who have held a PhD for at least ten years) must have demonstrated a track record of significant and original research achievements over a sequence of years and be active at the international forefront of their research fields.

Scholars may apply for a full academic year or one semester.


Fellows receive a monthly stipend or salary, the size of which will be decided after consultation with the fellow and a consideration of relevant circumstances. Applicants are encouraged to seek additional financial support from other sources (e.g. sabbatical leave and research grants). The Collegium will provide and pay for accommodation for fellows who do not live in the Stockholm–Uppsala region.

Application and Deadline

Fellowships are awarded on the basis of scholarly excellence. Applications are reviewed three times a year. In conjunction with these meetings, applications are also sent to external referees for review. Applications may be submitted two to three years in advance of the period for which candidates wish to come. However, the deadline for a particular academic year is on the 15th of July the year before.
