Grant of the Week: German Historical Institute Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships

Zoe Jackson | Aug 23, 2017

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships from the German Historical Institute. 

The German Historical Institute in Washington, DC awards short-term fellowships to European and North American doctoral students as well as postdoctoral scholars to pursue research projects that draw upon primary sources located in the United States. The GHI has two deadlines each year for the fellowships: April 1 and October 1. The next deadline for applications is October 1, 2017.

The proposed research projects should make use of historical methods and engage with the relevant historiography. We especially invite applications from doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars who currently have no funding from their home institutions. The GHI will not provide funding for preliminary research, manuscript composition, or the revision of manuscripts. It will give clear priority to those postdoc projects that are designed for the “second book.” The fellowship is open to both doctoral and postdoctoral scholars based in North America and Europe. The monthly stipend is €2,000 for doctoral students and €3,400 for postdoctoral scholars. 

More details about the program, including application instructions, are available on the GHI website.

End: October 1, 2017
