The American Friends of Marbach, with the generous support of the Max Kade Foundation, are able to award summer dissertation fellowships of $4,000 each to Ph.D. candidates from American universities doing research in the field of German Studies at the DLA. In addition, we encourage applications from Ph.D. candidates working on digital humanities projects that would benefit from time spent at the DLA.
These grants are meant to be taken over the summer break. All grantees benefit from the excellent services that the DLA provides to researchers. Researchers can also participate in a weekly »Stipendiaten-Café«, where international stipend-holders and fellow humanists have the opportunity to network and present their work to one another. Depending on availability, the well-appointed Collegienhaus on the grounds of the DLA offers an excellent option for lodging.
Please submit a 1-2 page project description which should include a brief statement about the relevance of the holdings at the DLA for the project, a current C.V. and arrange for one letter of recommendation from the dissertation advisor to be sent to Prof. Lynn Wolff: email@example.com by February 15, 2024.
The AFM Awards Committee will review all submissions received by the deadline and decisions will be announced by March 1.
