researchers. The fellows benefit from the finest intellectual and research conditions and from the
stimulating environment of a multi-disciplinary and international community of first-rate scholars.

EURIAS Fellowships are mainly offered in the fields of the humanities and social sciences but may
also be granted to scholars in life and exact sciences, provided that their proposed research
project does not require laboratory facilities and that it interfaces with humanities and social
sciences. The diversity of the 19 participating IAS offers a wide range of possible research
contexts in Europe for worldwide scholars. Applicants may select up to three IAS outside their
country of nationality or residence as possible host institutions.
