Details of JIAS Writing Fellowships.

The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) invites applications for its Seventh Writing Semester, which will run from 1 February to 31 May 2022.


From the beginning of February to the end of May every year, the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study hosts a group of exceptional creative writers and scholars from different disciplines as Writing Fellows. Each Writing Fellow focuses on her/his individual project while benefiting from interacting with other Writing Fellows and from the community of scholars and writers from the universities in Johannesburg and Gauteng in general.

Fellowships are open to any field of expertise. Previous fellows have included academics, novelists, scientists, poets, playwrights, independent researchers and journalists. Please note that if successful, we urge that you keep your scholarly commitments outside of JIAS to a minimum.


JIAS Writing Fellows enjoy a quiet space for work, reflection and academic community-building amidst the Melville Koppies of Johannesburg.

Each Writing Fellow will receive:

  • Accommodation in our private residential suites at JIAS;
  • Daily breakfast and lunch;
  • Access to the facilities of the nearby University of Johannesburg; AND
  • A monthly stipend which will be taxable.

Application Procedure

To apply, please submit a two-page proposal, a comprehensive CV, and three letters of reference before 15 July 2020. Please note incomplete applications will not be considered.

Please note that due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19, successful applications maybe withdrawn due to travel restrictions.
