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 the Foundation for Argentinean Development (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 2021-2022 will concentrate on gender from a broad perspective including social movements and public policies, care policies and work, gender diversity and reproductive rights, gender security and human rights, and economic 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 published in a working paper series by ILAS and made public by FUNDAR in Argentina.


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 Spring 2022 semester (January-May, 2022). Please note that due to the pandemic the fall 2021 semester is not available. A faculty committee will select two finalists and announce a decision in late May.

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, 2021.  Materials must be submitted in English.
