Applications are ongoing for the Academy Stavros Niarchos Foundation Fellowship 2017. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Fellowship supports one Academy fellow each year from Greece and the Greek diaspora who spends ten months at Chatham House. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Fellowship is a joint initiative between Chatham House and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas:
- Completing a personal research project of the fellow’s own design undertaken with the guidance of a Chatham House expert, (approximately 50%).
- Contributing to the ongoing research activities of their host research team and other Chatham House teams as appropriate (approximately 20%).
- Participation in the Academy’s Leadership Programme (approximately 30%). The Leadership Programme is a key part of the Academy fellowships. It provides fellows with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, network and self-awareness, which they can then draw upon in their future careers as effective leaders in their field.
Fellows are hosted by and based in research teams at Chatham House. During the fellowship, the fellow will conduct a research project of their own design which falls within the specified research topics. The parameters for the research topics have been designed in broad terms to allow applicants to devise a project that appeals to their own research interests.
The fellow will receive a monthly stipend of £2,160. Modest provision is made for the costs of relocation, fieldwork, and possible publication costs.
