Dear All – The following opportunity may be of interest to PhD students in History, Political Science, and SCAR. - Best, Kay


The American Council on Germany supports the work of promising American scholars who are studying important elements of the transatlantic relationship from both historical and contemporary standpoints. 

The  following fellowship programs are designed for students in relatively early stages of their careers, including individuals who are working on their doctoral dissertation. The fellows conduct archival research and interviews for up to 28 days with the assistance of these travel grants. 

The Council offers:
     •  Goldman Fellowships, which focus on German and wider European economic and international issues; and
     •  Hunt Fellowships, which focus on German politics, society, and culture, particularly from a historical perspective.

Application deadline for both awards is July 1, 2014.  For more information please visit:
