Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS)

The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) aims to provide optimal research conditions for curiosity-driven research. The Collegium is a scholarly community where Fellows pursue research of their own choosing in a context of interdisciplinary dialogue, discussion, and co-operation. Since its foundation in 1985, we strive to protect and nurture independent inquiry, collaborative and creative thinking, and to emphasize the importance of academic freedom
worldwide. Governmental support and support from major research foundations allow our invited Fellows to engage in focused research and to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.

Chartered by the Government of Sweden as an institute for advanced study, SCAS is a national scientific institution and resource. The Collegium is open to applications from scholars across the range of the human and social sciences, as well as from the natural sciences. SCAS hosts advanced senior scholars as well as early-career scholars. All candidates are assessed on the basis of their individual achievements and the quality and promise of their research proposal,including those who apply within the framework of a group. Every year presents a novel mixtureof Fellows from all over the world who either work on their individual projects or who are part of a cluster of scholars with similar interests.
