The Institutes

The seven French Institutes for Advanced Study of Aix-Marseille, Loire Valley (Orléans-Tours), Lyon, Montpellier, Nantes, Paris and Rennes teamed up to propose a unified and simplified entry point to their much-coveted scientific residencies.

Fellows apply through a centralized application tool and are preselected by the FIAS Selection Committee. The seven IAS are open to all disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

However, considering the research potential of the local academic sites, or the scientific priorities of the Institute, the IAS might want to attract applications in specific fields of research. Please check the page dedicated to the IAS you are interested in for more information.
