The Ouseley Fellowship is now open for applications. The aim of this award is to provide financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London to enable scholars to undertake a period of research on the Arabic, Persian, Hindustani and other Oriental languages in this country. 

The annual group of fellows benefits from and contributes to the vibrant intellectual life of the Institute.  Fellows are given a space to work, they are asked to offer an introduction to their research in an Introductory Talk and are encouraged to contribute to the Institute’s blog: Mnemosyne.

The fellowship is intended for scholars at any stage of their post-doctoral career. All Fellows will be expected to carry out original research on the topic for which they have been awarded their fellowship. Applications will not be accepted from candidates proposing to revise their doctoral dissertation for publication.

​Value of Fellowships and Tenure

Fellowships are tenable at the Warburg Institute and begin in September 2022 for a three month period. Fellows must hold at least three-quarters of their award during term-time.
