The fellowship provides a bursary of US$3000/£1800* towards travel and accommodation in support of research on any aspect of eighteenth-century Scottish studies. It is open to post-doctoral scholars of all nationalities, in all disciplines, and at all career levels. The Fellowship is for 2-6 months and may be taken at any time of the year. Fellows are expected to be in residence in Edinburgh for the duration of the Fellowship and to participate fully in IASH activities. IASH is housed in an eighteenth-century courtyard close to the Edinburgh University Library, and about twenty scholars are in residence at any time.
