Program Description

The objectives of the program are: 1) to offer fellowships to promising graduate students in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, and 2) to stimulate academic and student contacts with partner institutions under existing regional networks in related areas, create such networks, or participate in global networks, thus strengthening the internationalization process of the selected graduate programs.

Since 2002, 13 scholarships have been granted at the Master’s level in Anthropology and Development, Gender Studies and Latin American Studies. For 2007 new areas have been incorporated. The Chilean Sylff Fellows Association has been created and is actively participating in different projects.
