Visiting Fellowship Program

Applications are to be submitted through Uppsala Forum's application form. Click here to register your application.

The aim of the Visiting Fellowship Program is to enhance academic contact and international presence in the faculties and institutions participating in Uppsala Forum.

The program provides an opportunity for researchers at Uppsala Forum units to invite scholars or practitioners to spend time at Uppsala University. Application deadline is October 31 for the fall semester and March 31 for the spring semester.

During the stay, the visiting fellow is expected to work in a multi-disciplinary field or with a cross-disciplinary approach that is relevant for a broader group of academic colleagues. While ample time is given for research, the visiting fellow is also expected to participate in seminar activities and give supervision to PhD students in her/his field of expertise. The visit may further be aimed at establishing long-term collaboration between researchers or research groups within Uppsala Forum and the visiting fellow’s institution.

The fellowship covers costs for travel and lodging. As a main rule, the visit is to take place within one year from the date of the application deadline. The main applicant is a researcher at one of the Uppsala Forum units, who applies on behalf of the visiting fellow. The applicant’s department is expected to make an office space available for the whole duration of the stay. Applications are to be approved by the Head of Department. Applications are made through Uppsala Forum's application form.


  • Granted amounts always include 30 % OH
  • Uppsala Forum covers costs for travel and accommodation only
