Call for Applications: Vossius Fellowships for 2024

The Vossius Center for the History of Humanities and Sciences at the University of Amsterdam is now inviting applications for short-term Research Fellowships. The Fellowships are meant for inviting top researchers for 1-3 months to the UvA.

There are two kinds of fellowships:

  • Junior Fellow carries out research in the field of history of humanities and/or sciences, and presents her/his work at a colloquium at the Vossius Center, public lectures or/and research seminars. We encourage that the junior fellow’s work lead to a funding application.
  • Senior Fellow, in addition, establishes or consolidates a concrete collaboration with one or more members of the Vossius Center preferably leading to a joint project proposal.

Candidates should have a clear affinity with the history of humanities and/or sciences. Fellows are expected to participate in the activities of the Vossius Center whenever possible. For further information about the funded costs please contact us at


Submit a 750-word proposal, CV of the guest researcher, a letter of recommendation of one of the members of the Vossius Center, and a travel budget. For subsistence, the Vossius center offers a lumpsum of 2000 Euro per month for junior fellows, and 2500 Euro per month for senior fellows. On top of the lumpsum, fellows can also claim travel costs of maximally 500 Euro for fellows from Europe and of maximally 1000 Euro for fellows outside of Europe.

Application deadline 

15 October 2023 for fellowships for 2024.
