GHI Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships

Karen Lou | Aug 5, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the GHI Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships.


The German Historical Institute 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 is particularly interested in research projects relating to German and European history, the history of German-American relations, the role of Germany and the USA in international relations, and American history.

The proposed research projects should make use of historical methods and engage with the relevant historiography. The GHI especially invites applications from doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars who currently have no funding from their home institutions. 


The monthly stipend is €2,000 for doctoral students and €3,400 for postdoctoral scholars. In addition, fellowship recipients based in Europe will receive reimbursement for their round-trip airfare to the U.S. 

The fellowships are usually granted for periods of one to five months but, in exceptional cases and depending on the availability of funds, they can be extended by one month.

End: October 1, 2019.
