Fellow Meeting January 17-18, 2018


Students and scholars from over the world can join the TBI-fellowship platform. The TBI-fellowship platform is a multi-disciplinary network of doctoral students, postdocs, and scholars doing research in the field of mystical and spiritual studies.

Twice a year, a TBI-fellow meeting is organized where papers and other research results are shared and discussed. TBI-fellows also receive especially invitation to participate in conferences organized by the institute.

If you want to become a TBI-fellow, please send your cv and a description of your research project(s) to Marc.deKesel@titusbrandsmainstituut.nl . You will be accepted as TBI-fellow, once the TBI scientific board has approved your application.
