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 the period since the mid-18th century. Fellowships are awarded for doctoral dissertation research as well as postdoctoral research which leads to completion of a monograph.
The program offers a stimulating academic environment that combines excellent research opportunities at one of Germany’s most distinguished research universities with intellectual and cultural interaction. Our biweekly colloquium serves as a central meeting point for all fellows to share, discuss and support each other’s work.
The Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies offers up to one year of research support at the Freie Universität Berlin. The program accepts applications from U.S. and Canadian nationals, permanent or long-term residents. Applicants for a dissertation fellowship must be full-time graduate students at a North American university who have achieved ABD status by the time the proposed research stay in Berlin begins. Also eligible are U.S. and Canadian Ph.D.s who have received their doctorates within the past two calendar years. Fellowships are awarded for a period between ten to twelve months and must be held for a single continuous period. Approximately twelve fellows are selected. The number of reapplications for each fellowship category is limited to two.
The Berlin Program Fellowship stipends are EUR 1400 per month for fellows working on a dissertation project and EUR 1600 per month for fellows working on a postdoctoral research project. In addition, the program reimburses costs for transatlantic travel up to a maximum of EUR 1200.
