Description

 The American Academy in Berlin is a private, non-profit center for German-American cultural exchange. Its fellowship program promotes advanced research in a variety of academic, cultural, and political affairs.

Each year the Academy welcomes about two dozen fellows to the Hans Arnhold Center, on Lake Wannsee.

The Academy also hosts a small number of invited distinguished visitors for shorter stays of one to four weeks and organizes a diverse program that includes lectures and presentations by resident fellows, distinguished visitors, and guest speakers.

In addition to placing a very high priority on the independent work of its fellows, the Academy is in a unique position to aid fellows in establishing professional networks, as well as links to the media, both in Berlin and beyond.

‣ The Academy’s public atmosphere, which actively encourages fellows to introduce their work to wider audiences, serves its mission of fostering transatlantic ties through cultural exchange.

 American Academy in Berlin invites applications for its residential fellowships for 2014-2015, as well as early applications for the academic years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.

The The American Academy in Berlin welcomes applications from emerging and established scholars and from writers and professionals who wish to engage in independent study in Berlin. Approximately 26 Berlin Prizes are conferred annually.

Past recipients have included historians, economists, poets and novelists, journalists, legal scholars, anthropologists, musicologists, and public policy experts, among others. The Academy does not award fellowships in the natural sciences.

Fellowships are typically awarded for an academic semester or, on occasion, for an entire academic year.

Bosch Fellowships in Public Policy may be awarded for shorter stays of six to eight weeks. Fellowship benefits include round-trip airfare, partial board, a $5,000 monthly stipend, and accommodations at the Academy's lakeside Hans Arnhold Center in the Berlin-Wannsee district.

Fellowships are restricted to individuals based permanently in the United States. US citizenship is not required; American expatriates are not eligible.

Candidates in academic disciplines must have completed a PhD at the time of application.

Applicants working in most other fields - such as journalism, filmmaking, law, or public policy - must have equivalent professional degrees.

Writers should have published at least one book at the time of application. The Academy gives priority to a proposal's scholarly merit rather than any specific relevance to Germany.

Please note that the next application period for the Inga Maren Otto Berlin Prize in Music Composition will be in 2014. The Guna S. Mundheim Fellowship in the Visual Arts is an invitation-only competition.

Following a peer-reviewed process, an independent Selection Committee reviews finalist applications. The 2014-2015 Berlin Prizes will be announced in spring semester 2014.
