CREATE Fellowships: Frequently Asked Questions


Can more than one person jointly apply for one fellowship?

The fellowships are for individual support. However applicants can design their project to be implemented in a collaborative way, engage more persons, cooperate with groups or collectives, share the resources in the way they find they can best address the objectives.


How will fellowship recipients meet with the supervisors, CREA team and other fellows?

All meetings will be held online. There will be joint sessions and meetings with advisors every month while the seminar is in progress.


What limitations should be kept in mind while doing this project?

Limitations may vary from project to project. Time could be a constraint for some as the fellowship recipients have nine months to complete the project. Working in English could also be a constraint for some of the fellows. However we will try to resolve as many limitations as possible with the help of the resource persons.


Is it required to participate in the fellowship in English? 

The language of the working meetings and communication exchange will be in English. However, the project itself and its outcomes can be in local language. 


How can the applicants talk to CREA staff to obtain more clarity before applying for the fellowship?

Please send your queries to the following email address: 


Is the fellowship full-time?

We will have monthly meetings amongst fellows. There will be meetings with resource persons, for which fellows will need to prepare, e.g. to present their work. Following this, participation in a fellowship will require time to work on and implement individual projects; the time involved in the implementation of the project depends on the type and design of your project. The full timeline for the fellowship is nine months. 


Are Masters’ and PhD students eligible to apply for the fellowship?

Everyone with experience and working at the intersections of disability, gender and sexual diversity and intersex rights are eligible to apply, including students, scholars and activists. Educational qualification is not a prerequisite to apply for the fellowship. 


Can I send a curriculum vitae (CV) instead of filling out the application?

Unfortunately, no. It is necessary to fill in the form. 


Can you elaborate about the expected work from the fellowship?

The work undertaken in the fellowship should deepen knowledge and strengthen cross-movement understanding, solidarity and collective action on the intersections of disability justice, gender and sexual diversity and intersex rights.


What if I complete the fellowship before nine months? Will I still get the complete financial support?

Your work should be planned for the nine months. The financial support will be paid in tranches, with the final part at the completion of the fellowship and your project.
