Lorentz Fellowships

Lorentz Fellowships (in 2012 replaced by NLTG)
From 2006 until 2012, the NIAS-Lorentz Program granted individual Lorentz Fellowships. Lorentz Fellows worked on topics that covered cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that bridged the divide between the humanities and/or social sciences and the natural and/or technological sciences. Lorentz Fellows held a residential fellowship at NIAS for 10 months. Fellows also organized a NIAS-Lorentz Workshop at the Lorentz Center. In 2012 these individual Lorentz Fellowships were discontinued and replaced by NIAS-Lorentz Theme Group (NLTG) Fellowships.
