DAAD-AICGS Research Fellowship
The American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) is a nonprofit policy institute affiliated with Johns Hopkins University. Focused on German-American relations, AICGS examines and interprets the policy challenges confronting leadership circles in the German and U.S. constituencies it serves.
AICGS is now accepting applications for the next round of DAAD fellowships. The application deadline for Fall 2017 (July 2017 – December 2017) is February 28, 2017.
The DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program, funded by a generous grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), is designed to bring scholars and specialists working on Germany, Europe, and/or transatlantic relations to AICGS for research stays of two consecutive months each. Fellowships include a monthly stipend of up to $4,725, depending on the seniority of the applicant; transportation to and from Washington; and office space at the Institute.
Please note that the DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship supports fellows conducting research at AICGS in Washington DC and is unable to support research in Germany/Europe.
DAAD/AICGS Research Fellows will be expected to produce a short analytical essay that will be published on the AICGS website and distributed via the Institute's targeted analysis newsletter, The AICGS Advisor. For fellows producing research output of exceptional quality and interest, AICGS will provide opportunities for public presentations to the broader Washington policy community.
Project proposals should address a topic closely related to one or more of the Institute's three research and programming areas:
Special consideration will be given to research projects addressing the Institute's current issue agenda. Projects should also be compatible with and supportive of the AICGS mission, which is to strengthen the German-American relationship in an evolving Europe and changing world. The Institute produces objective and original analysis of developments and trends in Germany, Europe, and the United States; creates new transatlantic networks; and facilitates dialogue among the business, political, and academic communities to manage differences and define and promote common interests.
