The fellowship programme hosts international practitioners and researchers in the fields of architecture, design, and digital culture. Proposals are invited through an international open call and selected by an international jury of renowned curators, academics, and leaders in the creative fields. Fellows are supported with mentorship, archival resources, working spaces, and a stipend, and their research can evolve into public events, exhibitions, films, or publications in collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut.

Applications are open from March 18 to April 22, 2019.
