Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study STIAS

The Institute is funded by the Wallenberg foundations. Around 75 fellows stay with STIAS each year, with average residency periods of two‑and-a-half months, ranging between one and ten months. A fellowship covers the cost of travel, accommodation, stipends, administration and overheads.
