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’s self-funded Visiting Fellowships are open to scholars from outside the University of Cambridge.

CRASSH Visiting Fellowships are designed to support the Centre’s research interests, projects, and activities. 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.

We welcome applications from scholars who already have their own funding in place, and who wish to come to CRASSH as a Visiting Fellow 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.

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.

The Visiting Fellows programme for 2022 – 2023 is now full.

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