The Smuts Memorial Fund elects one Smuts Visiting Research Fellow a year, in association with a Visiting Research Fellowship at Wolfson College, to come to Cambridge to study for 9 months.
Fellowship holders are expected to live in Cambridge for the bulk of their tenure and accommodation is normally offered by Wolfson College.
Fellows are expected to advance Commonwealth Studies in Cambridge mainly by pursuing research, but also by taking part in seminars and similar activities within the University. Fellows will have access, by agreement, to the holdings of Faculty and Departmental libraries, to the libraries of the Centres of African Studies and South Asian Studies and to the University Library, which houses the extensive collection of materials relating to the history of the British Empire and Commonwealth, formerly housed in the Royal Commonwealth Society Library in London.
