Argentine Studies Visiting Fellowship

The Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) invites applications for the Argentine Studies Visiting Fellowship.

This fellowship provides financing for two-months visits to Columbia by scholars and scientists from any discipline who are working in Argentina on the topic of choice for that academic year. The program is supported by Fundar; its purpose is to strengthen scholarly ties between Columbia and the academic community of Argentina, while fostering research that can inform a broad policy conversation in Argentina and the region.

The call for the academic year 2022-2023 will concentrate on environmental governance, natural resources, sustainability, adaptation to climate change, and social inclusion in Argentina. Applicants are expected to have an expertise and prior work on the area, and their proposal should list how they plan to use the resources at Columbia to produce a policy paper to be discussed at the end of their fellowship. The paper will be made public by Fundar in Argentina.

Terms

The fellowship covers round trip, economy-class air travel to New York City, plus a fully furnished one-bedroom apartment around Columbia University for the duration of stay. A per diem equal to $75 will be made during the visit. For more information, contact Esteban Andrade, ILAS Program Manager. 

Applications are now open for consideration for a fellowship position during the Fall 2022 semester (September-December, 2022), or the Spring 2023 semester (January-May, 2023). A faculty committee will select two finalists and announce a decision in late May 2022.

Applicants are required to complete the following form and attach a five-page proposal clarifying their plans and how advanced is their work in the area already, along with their curriculum, and 2 letters of recommendation. 

The application deadline is April 15th, 2022.  Materials must be submitted in English.
