Application Procedures

  1. The Wenner-Gren Foundation receives over 100 Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship applications each year and normally awards eight annually. Given this degree of competition, the Foundation advises applicants to follow closely all the procedures for completing the application.
  2. Applications must be submitted on the most recent official application form. Application forms and guidelines for completing these forms are available three months before each application deadline.
  3. The Foundation operates an online application submission procedure. All application forms and other required application materials must be submitted online. If it is not possible to submit your application online because of inadequate internet access in your country of origin, you must notify the Foundation at least one week before the deadline to arrange to submit an application by conventional mail: (applications@wennergren.org).
  4. In addition to the online submission, one printed copy of the application form and required attachments, PLUS four (4) printed copies of the application form only, must be sent to the Foundation. This material must be postmarked by the application deadline (and received by the Foundation no later than two weeks after the deadline) or your application will not be reviewed.
  5. Applications are available 3 months before the application deadline.
  6. Applications must be in English.
  7. The Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship application asks for the following categories of information:
    • General information about yourself and the project

    • The answers to four project description questions. Applicants are advised to read the questions and instructions carefully as they develop their answers
    • A resubmission statement if the current application is a resubmission of a previously declined application.
