Appli­cants must have received their doc­tor­al degree with­in five years of the start of fund­ing (with some excep­tions). Appli­cants who have con­crete plans to pub­lish their research find­ings through a for­eign uni­ver­si­ty press with­in three years of the start of fund­ing will receive pref­er­ence.

Two fel­low­ship appoint­ments are avail­able. The fel­low­ship peri­od will extend from March 2019 to Feb­ru­ary 2020 or Sep­tem­ber 2019 to August 2020.
