Alistair Horne Fellowship 2024-25


The Fellowship carries an expenses allowance of GBP £20,000.

Deadline: Monday 11 December 2023

The Alistair Horne Fellowship (now in its 54th year) provides limited financial assistance and membership of St Antony’s College for a candidate prepared to write a significant book of non-fiction for a general readership.

Fellows will be senior members of St Antony’s College, entitled to the use of the College library, regional study centres, and social facilities. Free common table meals and 12 High Table meals

The Alistair Horne Fellow for the academic year 2024/25 will be elected early in 2024.  The purpose is to support the writing of a specific book.  Applications should include a cover letter, a brief curriculum vitae not to exceed four pages, a description of the proposed book not to exceed 10 pages, an indication of the author’s plans for the year, and the names and contact details of two referees.  Please note that doctoral students who intend to use the year to complete their theses are not eligible.  Nor do we encourage applicants who merely want to prepare their completed theses for publication rather than producing a book designed to appeal to a general readership. 

Applications should be sent by email only, for the attention of The Warden at

The deadline for applications is 12 noon (UK time), Monday 11 December 2023.
