The Institute now invites applications for Visiting Fellowships and Visiting Scholarships, tenable for 2020-21. Opportunities exist with or without funding to conduct research into any field relevant to the work of the Institute. Applications in categories 1, 2 and 3 must be made by 10 May 2020 (please click on the respective link on how to apply).

1. Funded Fellowships and Scholarships in Germanic Studies (Sylvia Naish)
Endowed by a generous bequest from the estate of Sylvia Naish, up to two Fellowships or Scholarships are offered annually for research into any area of German language and literature at the Institute and its Germanic Studies Library and Archives. The awards are designed to assist scholars in the early stages of their careers, to provide a contribution to temporary living expenses in London, or enable those in employment to take leave to further their studies. Fellowships/Scholarships should not be held concurrently with another fellowship or award.

2. Funded Fellowships in German-Speaking Exile Studies (Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller)
Sponsored by the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Trust, funding is available for researchers in the field of German-speaking exile in the UK wishing to work at the Institute's Germanic Studies Library and its Archives. The Exile Archive dates to 1996-97, when the collection was established at the then Institute of Germanic Studies (now Institute of Modern Languages Research). The Institute already held the papers of several individuals such as Rudolf MajutHerbert Thoma and Berthold Auerbach, who were exiled from Germany and Austria during the 1930s as a result of persecution under the National Socialist regime. Since the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exile Studies was set up, the Institute has attracted further significant donations and bequests, among the most important being the papers of the Anglo-Austrian Society and the archive of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller.The Fellowship(s) are open to applicants from the UK and overseas. Candidates should have completed their doctorate and have a strong publications record. The Fellowship(s) are designed to provide a contribution to temporary living expenses in London, or to enable those in employment to take leave to further their studies. Awards are typically made for periods of between one and three months.

3. Non-Stipendiary Visiting Fellowships and Scholarships
