IAS Vanguard Fellowships and Diversity
Promoting different and new ways of thinking about problems lies at the heart of the IAS mission. Diversity of thought comes in part from diversity of experiences and cultures.
A high proportion of recent nominations for IAS Vanguard Fellowships have been white male candidates. In the coming round, we challenge colleagues to nominate people in the early stages of their independent careers from a more diverse range of backgrounds, and particularly welcome the nomination of women and people from minority ethnic groups as visiting fellows to share knowledge and establish long-term collaborations.
