The Advanced Theological Studies Fellowship (ATSF) is a research exchange programme of Kampen Theological University, the Netherlands. In this fellowship, the university brings together a group of promising young international theologians (all of whom are preparing for their Ph.D. degree) for the period of a month to spend time together in exploring theological
themes and exchange insights.

Each researcher can use the research facilities of the university including its excellent library in order to prepare a paper in which he or she presents part of his or her research. Professors and other staff of the university or from elsewhere will give feedback on the presented papers in a public session.

To get an idea of what an ATSF month looks like and who have previously taken part in the ATSF, the previous ATSF programme of 2018 is available online and a list is available showing all of the former ATSF participants. One of last year's participants wrote a blog post about his experiences in Kampen. You can read it here.

The 2018 ATSF, took place in Kampen from May 28th until June 22nd. You can take a look at the 2018 call for papers to get an idea of how to apply. The call for papers for 2019 will be published on this website and spread in our networks.
