Eligibility

‣  Senior Fellowships are designed to support excellent scholars, who are well advanced in their academic careers. Qualified scholars are eligible without regard to nationality, institutional, or departmental affiliation; although preference is given to applicants of international repute who have published significant papers in recognized refereed journals and books that establish the author as a leading expert in his/her academic field.

Selection Criteria for IFK Senior and Research Fellowships

‣ Applications will be peer-reviewed by the IFK’s International Academic Advisory Board. A final decision will be taken in regard to the requirements of the yearly scholarly program. 

‣ The Board looks for four essential features in fellowship proposals:

  • a well-defined and innovative research question
  • a clear definition of the uniqueness of the work and/or the significance of the research to important theoretical and methodological issues in interdisciplinary culture studies and humanities
  • a discussion of the work in the context of appropriate research done by international scholars
  • clear methodological provisions that guarantee an interdisciplinary research focus

‣  The IFK discourages proposals that are either exclusively theoretical or exclusively empirical in character. It supports projects that combine empirical investigation with thoughtful theoretical work. 

‣  Research proposals that present a clearly formulated problem, demonstrate familiarity with the scholarly field(s), and develop an interdisciplinary methodological framework stand the best chance of approval by the International Academic Advisory Board
