Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) Writing Fellowship 2019 (Funded)

Deadline: September 14, 2018

Applications are invited for the fourth semester of the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) Writing Fellowship. The Fellowship which will run from February 4 to May 31, 2019 will provide Fellows with a quiet space for work, reflection and academic community-building amidst the Melville Koppies of Johannesburg.

The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) is a joint initiative of the University of Johannesburg (UJ), South Africa, and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Its purpose is to promote advanced research in the humanities and natural sciences, beyond the regular teaching and research activities at institutions of higher learning. JIAS is the first fully fledged institute of advanced learning in Gauteng, South Africa’s political and economic heartland.


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.


  • Open to any field of expertise. Previous Writing Fellows have included academics, novelists, scientists, poets, playwrights, independent researchers and journalists.


To apply, please submit a two-page proposal, a comprehensive CV, and the names and contact details of three referees to [email protected]
