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 2023-2024 will concentrate on violence and security governance, including policy innovations in social crime and public safety, the challenges and opportunities for engaging victims and other segments of society in addressing crime and violence, restorative justice mechanisms, alternatives to imprisonment and the use of new security technologies. Applicants are expected to have an expertise and prior work on the area, and PhD degree or equivalent at the time of the fellowship, and their proposal should list how they plan to use the resources at Columbia to produce a policy paper applied to Argentina to be discussed at the end of their fellowship, which will be made public in the Columbia community by the ILAS and in Argentina by FUNDAR.


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 period of February 1st to March 31st, 2024. 

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 10th, 2023.  Materials must be submitted in English.
