IUSSP Population, Ethics, and Human Rights are making a call for its fellowship in 2022.


The IUSSP Scientific Panel, jointly with USC IIGH, WiSER, and ISER, is issuing a global call for applications to host 3 early-career research/practitioner professionals for a 12-month period.

The Fellowship requires a full-time commitment during a 12-month residence period — Fellows will be hosted for 6 months at WiSER, Johannesburg and 6-months at ISER, Uganda (fellowship extension beyond 12-months is subject to available funding). The Fellowship Program will include support for individual and group research projects, interactive
dialogues, seminars and research/practitioner workshops that seek to unpack interdisciplinary perspectives with a particular focus on emerging challenges in low- and middle-income countries. Fellows will be supported by the IUSSP Scientific Panel and the partner institutions WiSER (South Africa), ISER (Uganda), and IIGH (United States).


  1. Applications will be accepted from low- and middle-income countries from different geographic regions and disciplinary expertise and supported to become a cohort of thought leaders in this emerging field, including support for multidisciplinary collaboration.
  2. Fellows will be hosted at WiSER and ISER, so their residential fellowship will include direct study of and engagement with contemporary issues in South Africa and Uganda, as a complement to their own studies or areas of work (even if not specifically focused on South Africa or Uganda).


  1. Stipend: US$27,500 over 12 months to cover all living expenses
  2. Travel Costs: Economy airfares from current residence to Johannesburg, between Johannesburg and Kampala, and between Kampala and Johannesburg, and home again
  3. Administrative Costs: Health insurance and visa costs
