Urban Studies Foundation calls applications for the USF International Fellowship scheme for urban scholars from the Global South.
The Urban Studies Foundation International Fellowships cover the costs of a sabbatical period at a university of the candidate’s choice in the Global North or South for the purpose of writing-up the candidate’s existing research findings in the form of publishable articles and/or a book under the guidance of a chosen mentor in their field of study. Funding is available for a period ranging between 3-9 months, and the proposed research may comprise any theme pertinent to a better understanding of urban realities in the Global South
The financial support attached to the fellowship will meet accommodation and subsistence needs while staying at the host university, return (economy class) air fare, and assistance towards research costs (including any enrolment fees and other resource costs). There is also a small budget available for the mentor to assist the Fellow to meet their intended research aims should this be appropriate. Short-listed candidates may also apply for a small amount of limited award support funds to cover either (a) extra-ordinary care costs, for example to support any additional care costs for dependent person(s) incurred during the sabbatical (e.g. children), or (b) costs arising from disability (see Further Particulars for terms). Urban Studies Foundation International Fellowships 2021 may begin from summer 2021 but must start no later than one year after the application deadline (i.e. before 30th April 2022).
