To encourage the development and dissemination of ideas, AMI invites applications for visiting research fellowships. Scholars, working on high impact research in line with the aims of Al-Mahdi Institute can apply for either a 3-month or 6-month fellowship. The non-stipendiary fellowship offers single room accommodation for the duration of the stay and full access to AMI research facilities and library collection.

Visiting scholars are expected to actively participate in the institute’s research activities and are encouraged to make themselves available to teach AMI students during their stay.
