The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) is offering the Global Horizons Residential Fellowship Programme to scholars from any country who are researching global governance. The aim of the program is to encourage interdisciplinary research on important issues related to global governance, with a particular focus on current aspects of globalization.
The program is looking for research fellows who are interested in collaborating across faculties, and it revolves around three main themes: Global Knowledge Cultures and Regimes, Global Political Predicaments, and Global Futures. The program has a forward-thinking approach and is focused on contributing to knowledge advancement in contemporary forms of governance and their implications. While fellows are free to concentrate on their own research interests without the obligation of teaching and administration, they are expected to participate actively in the Collegium’s scholarly community and attend seminars and academic events outside their areas of expertise.
Young Scholarship Program, Sweden is open to candidates pursuing Fellowship level programs at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Studies.
This scholarship program focuses on the subject of global governance.
Successful fellows will receive a monthly salary, and the exact amount can be found on the program’s website. Additionally, applicants may seek other funding sources, such as sabbatical leave, to supplement their income.
Furthermore, the Collegium will provide accommodation and cover the expenses for fellows who are not located in the Stockholm-Uppsala region.
Students from any country are eligible to apply for this scholarship program.
