Notification of applicants and evaluation of applications
The selection of the Visiting Fellows will be concluded by 6 April 2018 and the names of the Aleksanteri Visiting Fellows will be published on the Institute’s website. In 2018-2019, we expect to invite 12-15 Visiting Fellows, most of them for two- or three-month fellowships. All applicants will be personally notified of the result, but we are not able to provide feedback on individual applications. The applications will be evaluated by three experts. While the main selection criteria are academic excellence and the potential for a mutually beneficial research visit, these criteria are combined with our aim to invite a diverse cohort of fellows in terms of research topics, disciplines, and countries of study. Each year, we receive a large number of excellent applications that we cannot fund, and we encourage resubmissions.
The Aleksanteri Institute will assist Visiting Fellows with practical arrangements and will make reservations for accommodation in the Unihome’s Töölö Towers location, with 178 studios and apartments of 14 different sizes, fit for single occupants as well as for families. The Töölö Towers offer university’s visitors furnished accommodation in a nice, centrally located neighbourhood. It is within walking distance of the Aleksanteri Institute and within easy reach by public transportation. Monthly rents for studios and apartments for single occupancy range from c. 850 € to c. 1400 €. The rent includes breakfast, weekly cleaning and Wi-Fi.
