The Andrew Walls Fellowships

Professor Andrew F. Walls

The Andrew Walls Fellowships have been established in honour of our colleague Professor Andrew Finlay Walls, OBE and will provide visiting Fellowships for African scholars at the University of Edinburgh, to further research into African Christianity.

The University of Edinburgh is committing seed funding for this initiative, and we are seeking further support from individuals and organisations to enable the Fellowships to be established over several years. Our aim is to raise sufficient funds to launch the Fellowship programme in 2023.

Hosted at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), the Fellows will work closely with the Centre for the Study of World Christianity and the Centre for African Studies. The Fellowships will promote closer networking and partnership between northern and southern hemisphere institutions in advancing the scholarly and collaborative study of African Christianity.

The Andrew Walls Fellowships will offer:

  • A Research visit in Edinburgh, one of the world’s most intellectually inspiring cities, for 2-3 months
  • Dedicated office space and University library access
  • Weekly Fellows’ social events to build community
  • Collegial work-in-progress seminar series for testing new ideas
  • Calendar of engaging events at the Institute and Colleges
  • Membership of the dynamic international network of IASH alumni

For further information on pledging donations, and applications for the fellowship, see the School of Divinity page.
