The Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies promotes a new generation of young North American scholars with specialized knowledge of modern and contemporary Germany and Europe. The Program supports scholars in all social science and humanities disciplines, including historians working on modern and contemporary German and European history. Fellowships are awarded for doctoral dissertation research as well as postdoctoral research which leads to completion of a monograph.
Following a model usually reserved for senior researchers at institutes of advanced study, the Berlin Program is a residential program which offers a stimulating academic environment that combines research opportunities with intellectual and cultural interaction. An integral part of the program is a biweekly interdisciplinary colloquium where fellows present their work. The Berlin Program is administered in partnership with the German Studies Association (GSA).
The Berlin Program Fellowship stipends are EUR 1100 per month for fellows working on a dissertation project and EUR 1400 per month for fellows working on a postdoctoral research project. The Program offers fellows EUR 130 per month for each accompanying child and EUR 130 per month as spousal support if the spouse is not working or is on a fellowship.
The Program provides one round-trip airfare for each fellow between the fellow¿s residence at the time of award and Berlin. In addition, funds for intra-European research travel may be granted upon request.
This fellowship is restricted to US and Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Applications are typically due in December. Visit funder website for more information.
