French Institutes for Advanced Study Fellowship Program 2022

The French Institutes for Advanced Study Fellowship Program 2022 is now accepting applications.

French Institutes for Advanced Study Fellowship

The program provides 10-month fellowships at the Aix-Marseille Institute, the Loire Valley Institute, Lyon, Montpellier, Nantes, and Paris Institutes.

It invites submissions from internationally renowned researchers and scientists, mainly in the social sciences and humanities (SSH). The competition is accessible to all SSH disciplines and research subjects. Other science-related research initiatives having a transversal discourse with SSH are also acceptable. It is strongly advised that you visit the Institutes’ websites to learn more about their mission, research interests, and collaborators.


The Fellows will benefit from the IAS’s support and supportive scientific environment, which is distinguished by an interdisciplinary cohort of fellows and a tight connection to local research potential. The fellows will have complete autonomy over how they arrange their work and conduct research.
