With the generous support of the Farman-Farmaian Family, the IISH launched in 2013 a new fellowship programme named the Prince Dr Sabbar Farman-Farmaian Fellowships.

  • The programme will invite every year scholars who wish to use the IISH collections for the study of the social and cultural history of 18th-20th century Iran, whether from a regional, national, or comparative and transnational perspective.
  • The fellowships are awarded for six months each year.

Available fellowships are listed below.
