Berlin Prize – Call for Applications
The American Academy in Berlin invites applicants for its Berlin Prize residential fellowships for 2013-2014, as well as early applications for the ensuing two academic years.
The Academy is a private, non-profit center for advanced study in the humanities, public policy, social sciences and the arts. The Berlin Prize Fellowships allow academics, writers, artists and policy experts to pursue research in Berlin, as part of the Academy’s mission to foster greater understanding and dialogue between the people of the United States and the people of Germany. The Fellowships offer outstanding individuals invaluable time away from daily obligations to work on a project for a full academic semester, or, in some cases, for an entire year. Since the Academy opened its doors in 1998, more than 350 Fellows and guests have made contributions to the dialogue among disciplines, including 2000-2001 Fellowship winner Ann Harleman (Senior Lecturer, English).
While in residence, Berlin Prize Fellows pursue a wide range of creative and academic projects, some, but by no means all, linked to German topics. The Academy provides a generous monthly stipend, roundtrip airfare, partial board and comfortable accommodations. The application deadline is September 28, 2012.
