Dissertation Grants for work at the DLA: Apply by March 15, 2019


Please announce to all graduate students and share widely

The American Friends of Marbach (AFM) are able to award six dissertation grants of $4.000 each to Ph.D. candidates from American universities doing research in the field of German Studies at the Deutsche Literaturarchiv (DLA) in Marbach. These grants are meant to be taken over the summer break. Two of them have been granted by the Max Kade Foundation in New York; one is named after its donor “The David Detjen Research Grant;” another one is the recently established “Egon Schwarz Research Grant.” In addition, the American Friends of Marbach are able to offer two “AFM Research Grants” out of their own funds.  


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 Kollegienhaus 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 adviser to be sent to Prof. Johannes von Moltke (University of Michigan): by March 15, 2019. Decisions will be announced in mid-April.
