Apply Now (2018 Application opens): Iso Lomso fellowships for African Researchers

Dear Colleagues,
Iso Lomso fellowships provide an exceptional early career opportunity for Africa’s brightest minds in academia. Iso Lomso means ‘the eye of tomorrow’ in isiXhosa: seeing towards the future, laying the foundations for tomorrow. The third call for applications is now open.
Iso Lomso Fellows enjoy:
  • a
    three-year attachment to STIAS during which time they may spend a total
    of ten months in residence at STIAS to develop and pursue a long-term
    research programme;
  • the possibility of a residency at a sister institute for advanced study in North America, Europe or elsewhere;
  • funding to attend up to three international conferences or training workshops anywhere in the world;
  • support to convene a workshop with collaborators at STIAS;
  • lecturer replacement subsidy for the fellow’s home institution during residency periods.
The
programme is aimed at African scholars who have obtained a doctoral
degree within the preceding seven years and who hold an academic
position at a university or research institution anywhere in Africa.
Candidates should have established a research programme and have
completed a post-doctoral fellowship or equivalent post-PhD programme.
All disciplines are considered.
