Advanced Theological Studies Fellowship (ATSF) 2024


The Advanced Theological Studies Fellowship (ATSF) is a research exchange programme of Theological University Utrecht, the Netherlands. In this fellowship, the university brings together a group of promising young international theologians and historians of Protestantism (all of whom are preparing for their PhD degree) for one month to spend time together exploring theological themes and exchanging insights. In 2024 the ATSF programme will take place from the 27th of May till the 21th of June 2024 in Kampen.

At the beginning of the month, all participants present their research during a poster presentation session. Professors and other researchers of the university will be present to react to the presented research projects and to make suggestions for progress. The participants can use the research facilities of the university, including its excellent library, to work on their project. Most importantly, there are many possibilities to interact with professors and fellow researchers of the university. During the ATSF programme, the participants work on a specific chapter or topic related to their research. At the end of the month, they prepare a second presentation in which they share their results or the progress they made during their month inKampen.
