Wallenberg Academy Fellows

Wallenberg Academy Fellows is a career programme where the most promising young researchers in natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities receive resources for long-term development of their work.

The programme was created by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in close cooperation with five royal Swedish academies and sixteen Swedish universities.

The universities nominate individuals and the academies select the most promising candidates. The final selection is made by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The programme is open to Swedish and foreign researchers.
