The Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship
What is a Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship?
The Distinguished Lorentz Fellowship (DLF) is awarded to a leading scientist to work on cutting-edge research at the interface between the Humanities and/or Social Sciences on one hand and the Natural Sciences and/or Technological Sciences on the other. It consists of:
· A residential fellowship at NIAS of 5 to 10 months including on-campus study and accommodation,
