Only pairs of scholars are eligible to apply, and must apply together. Applicants will normally hold a full-time or part-time salaried position – which may be permanent or fixed-term – at an institution of higher education and research, though independent scholars are also eligible.
Each pair must represent two different disciplines and two different institutions. Applications from two countries or nationalities are also encouraged: one of the aims of this award is to facilitate collaboration across borders.
Applications are expected for awards up to a maximum value of €40,000 per pair.
In November 2021, the ISRF launched its first Collaborative Fellowships competition. Having received a number of strong proposals, the Selection Panel met in July 2022, and voted to make three awards.
