The Charles Wallace India Trust Fellowship
The Charles Wallace India Trust funds one Visiting Research Fellowship per year at The University of Edinburgh. The Fellowship is held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, in association with the University’s Centre for South Asian Studies. The Fellowship is for three months and is for arts and humanities research (including South Asian film, literature, history etc). Applicants must have a background in the arts and humanities, as social science topics fall outside of the Fellowship's remit.
Applicants must be Indian citizens, resident, and pursuing their academic careers, in India. They must have a doctorate and be under 45.
The Fellowship provides a grant for living expenses in the UK which is currently at the monthly rate of £1400, and a contribution of £600 towards the cost of fares, payable on arrival in the UK.

The Daiches-Manning Memorial Fellowship in 18th-Century Scottish Studies
The Daiches-Manning Memorial Fellowship in 18th-Century Scottish Studies, co-sponsored by the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society (ECSSS), the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS), and the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh (IASH). The Fellowship is for two to six months and may be taken at any time of the year. Fellows are expected to be in residence in Edinburgh for the duration of the Fellowship and to participate fully in IASH activities.
The Daiches-Manning Memorial Fellowship honours two outstanding scholars of eighteenth-century Scottish literature and culture, Professor David Daiches (1912–2005) and Professor Susan Manning (1953–2013). David Daiches was one of the original directors of IASH during the 1980s and was the first recipient of ECSSS’s Lifetime Achievement Award, presented at the Society’s first annual conference in 1987. Susan Manning served as director of IASH from 2005 until her death, President of ECSSS from 1994 to 1996, and continuously as a member of the ECSSS Executive Board from 1994 to 2013. She was awarded the ECSSS Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously in May 2013. Although both David Daiches and Susan Manning had broad intellectual interests and expertise, each made a particularly important contribution to eighteenth-century Scottish studies as an interdisciplinary and international research field.
The fellowship provides a bursary of US$3000/£1800* towards travel and accommodation in support of research on any aspect of eighteenth-century Scottish studies. It is open to post-doctoral scholars of all nationalities, in all disciplines, and at all career levels. Fellows must be members of ASECS and ECSSS at the time the funds are awarded.
