Visiting Fellowships

Open to scholars from outside Cambridge


About

"I think that an intellectual community that helps you become a better, smarter, and more articulate version of yourself is hard to find. That’s what I found at CRASSH".  (Christopher Nygren, Visiting Fellow,  Michaelmas 2017)
 

CRASSH Visiting Fellowships are designed to support the Centre's research interests, projects,  and activities. Depending on the Fellowship, Fellows are usually given desk space in the Centre and certain practical assistance in their research. CRASSH can help in arranging accommodation with a College and enable access to the University Library and other departmental libraries. CRASSH may also support visitors who come to Cambridge for a period of days or weeks in order to participate in a particular activity organised by the Centre. For information about the funded international fellowship opportunities please click on the Fellowships tab on this page. Find out more about current fellowship opportunities at CRASSH and apply online.

As well as our established fellowship opportunities, we welcome applications from scholars who already have their own funding in place, and who wish to come to CRASSH for a term or longer.  The Centre assumes that visitors will be in Cambridge to pursue their independent research and does not provide or arrange academic supervision. Please go to our information page  to see our terms and conditions. Our online application process for 2021-22 visiting fellowships is now closed. If you wish to make an enquiry please email fellowships@crassh.cam.ac.uk A call for applications for 2022-23 will open early next year. Please check our homepage for alerts or sign up to our Newsletter to stay informed.

All queries should be directed to fellowships@crassh.cam.ac.uk.  

 

 

Funded Fellowships

The Charles Wallace India Trust (one term)

The Charles Wallace India Trust fellowship at CRASSH offers funding for a term of study and residence in Cambridge during the academic year.  The scheme is intended for earlier-career academics from India (defined as resident and domiciled in India, normally between the ages of 25 and 45 years). Applicants should have been in full-time academic employment in an Indian university or research institute of equivalent standing for at least five years and have completed a PhD. Find out more about the Fellowship and Fellows.
The competition to select a Fellow for 2021-22 is now open. Please go to the fellowships online application page to see further information and apply online.
 

Quentin Skinner Fellowship (one term)

In 2009 the Faculty of History received funding from the International Balzan Prize Foundation to establish an annual Lecture in modern intellectual history since c. 1500.  In 2015-16 this Fellowship came to an end and is now known as the Quentin-Skinner Fellowship in Intellectual History since c15.00. The appointed Fellow holds a fellowship at CRASSH for one term, presenting the Quentin-Skinner lecture and participating in the related symposium. Find out more about the Quentin Skinner Fellowship and previous Balzan-Skinner Fellows. The Quentin Skinner Fellowship is intended for early-career scholars (normally defined as within ten years of attaining the PhD). Like previous Balzan-Skinner Fellows, the Quentin Skinner Fellow will be invited to give a lecture on a subject of their choosing in the broad field of intellectual history since 1500, including the history of political thought, and will organise a half-day colloquium to follow the lecture.
The competition to select the Fellow for 2020 – 2021 is now closed.
