The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) invites fellow applications for its Sixth Writing Semester. The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study Writing Fellowships 2021 which will run from 1 February to 31 May 2021.


The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) is an institute based at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Although only launched in May 2015 as the first fully-fledged institute for advanced learning in Gauteng, South Africa’s economic and political heartland, JIAS has grown to be one of the leading institutes of its kind based in the African continent. Its purpose is to promote advanced research in the humanities and natural sciences, beyond the regular teaching and research activities at institutions of higher learning.

Aim of JIAS Fellowships 

JIAS aims to create the conditions in which scholars can deliver cutting-edge interdisciplinary thought and research at the highest academic level. This is done by reaching beyond the regular teaching and research routines of contemporary higher education, and by encouraging collaborative scholarly cooperation in both the humanities and natural sciences.


Fellowships are open to any field of expertise. Previous fellows have included academics, novelists, scientists, poets, playwrights, independent researchers, and journalists. Please note that if successful, JIAS urges that you keep your scholarly commitments outside of JIAS to a minimum.

Benefits of JIAS Fellowships

JIAS Writing Fellows enjoy a quiet space for work, reflection, and academic community-building amidst the Melville Koppies of Johannesburg. Each Writing Fellow will receive the following things

  • Accommodation in private residential suites at JIAS.
  • Daily breakfast and lunch.
  • Access to the facilities of the nearby University of Johannesburg.
  • A monthly stipend that will be taxable.
