Senior Fellow Application Information

You are here

The Institute of European Studies welcomes applications for its Senior Fellows program. IES admits only a limited number of qualified candidates on a competitive basis. Senior Fellows do not receive any direct funding from IES, are not granted office space nor UC Berkeley library ID or a Berkeley e-mail-address and cannot request asstance for their visa application. 

Scholars who wish to be considered should review the following information on the Senior Fellows Program and the application process:

  1. Applicants need to have a permanent position at their home institution. Senior Fellowship can only be a secondary, not a primary affiliation.
  2. Applicants are expected to give at least one public lecture at IES per year. Applicants should include a 400-word abstract about the first lecture they intend to give at IES.
  3. Applicants must obtain a nominating letter from a UC faculty member in their area of expertise. The letter from the nominating faculty member should attest to the scholar’s qualifications and explain to the selection committee why it would be beneficial to the campus community for IES to admit the scholar as senior fellow.
