Eligibility Criteria | ASCL Visiting Fellowship Programme

To be eligible for a Visiting Research Fellowship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must hold a PhD degree, by the time of applying;
  • Have conducted research, as part of the PhD and/or in later projects; with a focus on Africa;
  • Be actively pursuing an academic/research career;
  • Have published books, book chapters and/or journal articles in recent years that meet international standards;
  • In accordance with visa regulations, be ready to return to the country of which he/she is a citizen and/or a current resident upon completion of the fellowship.

In the assessment of applications that meet these requirements,

  • Emphasis will be placed on the quality and feasibility of intended work and outputs from the fellowship (labelled “research proposal” in the application form).

Fellowship Benefits

Successful applicants for the Visiting Research Fellowship will receive the following benefits:

  • A return ticket (economy class).
  • Coverage of living costs (fixed amount).
  • Accommodation in Leiden: a fellow is provided with his/her own single bed/sitting room. Kitchen and bathroom are to be shared with a maximum of two other fellows (male/female). The rooms are on the first floor, with the landlord and landlady living on the ground floor. If the offered accommodation is unacceptable for the fellow (for instance fellow who wish to travel with a partner, or child) he/she is expected to look for alternative accommodation him/herself in Leiden or its vicinity. Alternative accommodation will not be paid for by the fellowship/institute. The institute cannot assist the fellow in their search for alternative accommodation.
  • A medical/liability insurance (please note that this insurance does not cover the cost of treatment of a pre-existing medical condition).
