Writing Fellowships 2021: Call for applications

The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) invites applications for its Sixth Writing Semester, which will run from 1 February to 31 May 2021.

Fellowships are open to any field of expertise. Previous fellows have included academics, novelists, scientists, poets, playwrights, independent researchers and journalists. Please note that if successful, we urge that you keep your scholarly commitments outside of JIAS to a minimum.

JIAS Writing Fellows enjoy a quiet space for work, reflection and academic community-building amidst the Melville Koppies of Johannesburg.

Each Writing Fellow will receive:

  • Accommodation in our private residential suites at JIAS;
  • Daily breakfast and lunch;
  • Access to the facilities of the nearby University of Johannesburg; AND
  • A monthly stipend which will be taxable.

To apply, please submit a two-page proposal, a comprehensive CV, and referees should submit three letters of reference directly to [email protected] before 15 July 2020. Please note that reference letters should not be submitted by applicants themselves and incomplete applications will not be considered.

Please note that due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19, successful applications maybe withdrawn due to travel restrictions.
