IEG Fellowships for Doctoral Students
Application deadline: February 15, 2019
For IEG Fellowships beginning in September 2019 or later
The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards 8–10 fellowships for international doctoral students in European history, the history of religion, historical theology, or other historical disciplines.
The IEG funds PhD projects on European history from the early modern period until 1989/90. We are particularly interested in projects
- with a comparative or cross-border approach,
- on European history in its relation to the wider world, or
- on topics of intellectual and religious history.
What we offer
The IEG Fellowships provide a unique opportunity to pursue your individual PhD project while living and working for 6–12 months at the Institute in Mainz. The monthly stipend is € 1,350.
During the fellowship you are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz. You actively participate in the IEG's research community, the weekly colloquia and scholarly activities. We expect you to present your work at least once during your fellowship. The IEG preferably supports the writing up of dissertations; it will not provide funding for preliminary research, language courses or the revision of book manuscripts. PhD theses continue to be supervised under the auspices of the fellows' home universities. We expect proficiency in English and a sufficient command of German to participate in discussions at the Institute.
Please combine all of your application materials except for the application form into a single PDF and send your application to
email@example.com. Letters of recommendation should be submitted directly by the referees. You may write in either English or German; we recommend that you use the language in which you are most proficient.

The IEG has two deadlines each year for the IEG Fellowships: February 15 and August 15.
The next deadline for applications is February 15, 2019.
