The Scaliger Institute hosts several fellowship programmes for visiting scholars, some with a broad scope, like the Brill Fellowship, and others in specific fields of research, like the Isaac Alfred Ailion Fellowship and the Lingling Wiyadharma Fellowship. Elsevier also offers a Fellowship for Digital Scholarship, specifically aimed at research in the extensive Leiden Digital Collections.

We thank all the sponsors of the fellowships in this round: Brill Publishers, the Juynboll Foundation, the Lingling Wiyadharma Fund and the Vera Gottschalk-Frank Foundation.
