Call for Applications Tiele Fellowships 2024

12 June 2023

The Dr. P.A. Tiele-Stichting is devoted to promoting the study of the book in past, present and future. Its activities include publishing scholarly books and articles and organizing symposia and lectures. In 2021 the Tiele-Stichting has started a fellowship programme to stimulate research in the field of books and reading in the Netherlands and Flanders.

Two fellowships

Each year, two (at most three) Tiele Fellows will receive financial support and research assistance. One of the Fellows will study an aspect of book and reading culture in the past, the other will study an aspect in the present and/or the future.

Grant and support

The grant amounts to € 1.500,- per month, for a period of at least one and at most two months. The study must be carried out in 2024. Depending on the nature of the research, Fellows may be entitled to a work place in one of the institutions associated with the Tiele-Stichting. A scholarly advisor from the Tiele-Stichting’s network will supervise the project.


Tiele Fellowships are open for anyone with demonstrable scholarly skills. A completed PhD is not required.
