Stipendiary Fellowships at the London SAS Institute of Latin American Studies

The purpose of this scheme is to provide support to early career scholars with relevant subject expertise to pursue innovative and interdisciplinary research on Latin America and the Caribbean in an environment tailored to such work, free from the competitive institutional constraints of other UK university institutions. The scheme enables the Fellows to engage a broad range of UK and international scholars in their research through the formation of networks and through collaboration in research projects, publications and dissemination events such as workshops and conferences.

This scheme is now open for applications for Stipendiary Fellowships commencing in academic year 2017-18. The deadline for applications is 11.59pm (UK time) on Sunday 21 May 2017. With regret, any application received after the deadline may not be considered.


The Stipendiary Fellowship entitles the successful candidate to:

  • Stipend of £1,750 per calendar month
  • Access to Senate House Libraries, which includes the Latin American library collection
  • Access and publishing rights into the School on-line repository service, SAS-Space
  • Access to your personalised SAS email account
  • Use of our office space

During your tenure you are expected to contribute in a positive way to the scholarly life and community of the institute. This will include regular updates to the School Directory of Research and Expertise, a small contribution to our annual report, contribute to the Institute’s programme of events, and acknowledge the institute in any publications or other outputs that arise from this visit.
