Assessment criteria and review process


Selection criteria include the scientific merits of the applicant, the quality of the proposed research, and its feasibility. Priority will be given to candidates that can benefit from, and contribute to, a multidisciplinary discourse at the respective institute. Candidates must have demonstrated a strong track record of significant and original research achievements and be active at the international forefront of their research fields.

Selection process

The selection process takes place in two steps. RJ will be responsible for a preselection of all Swedish applicants using an ad hoc committee of international scholars. In October (week of 42, 2023), a short-list of candidates will be presented to each institute. Final decisions will be made by the respective institute in early 2024. We expect 1–2 Swedish fellows to be accepted each year per institute.

Please contact Riksbankens Jubileumsfond with further questions about this program and with specific questions about the three institutes.
