German Historical Institute Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships

Description

The GHI awards short-term research fellowships to European and North American doctoral students as well as postdoctoral scholars to pursue research projects that draw upon primary sources principally located in North America. 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 fellowship is open to both doctoral and postdoctoral scholars based in North America and Europe. The monthly stipend is 2,000 euros for doctoral students and 3,400 euros for postdoctoral scholars. The GHI has two deadlines each year for the fellowships: April 1 and October 1. Applicants should be based at (or recent graduates of) a North American or European university or research institute. For doctoral students applying, ABD status is required before starting the fellowship. For postdoctoral scholars applying, the preference is for projects that are designed for the "second book" (Habilitation or pre-tenure equivalent). The proposed project should require primary research that is principally located in North America. Please visit the fellowship's website for more information.
