For Doctoral Students in German History at North-American West Coast Universities

The program will grant up to five summer fellowships of up to 3,300 Euro each to graduate students in German History at North American Universities located along the West Coast (west of the Mississippi River and the western provinces of Canada). This funding will give doctoral candidates with a focus on German history the opportunity to work for four to six weeks in German archives and libraries to review material for their dissertation. In individual cases outstanding projects can also be funded, which are not primarily concerned with German History but require a research stay in German archives.

This preparatory research is intended to make it easier for doctoral candidates to write a detailed description of their project which in turn can improve their chances of success if they choose to apply for a longer-term research fellowship in Germany in the future.

This fellowship is funded by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung, Germany.
