The DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program, funded by a generous grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), is designed to bring both senior and junior scholars and specialists working on key issues of central importance to the German-American relationship to AICGS for research stays of between two to four consecutive months each. AICGS offers several fellowships, which include a monthly stipend of up to €3,204 (depending on the seniority of the applicant); transportation to and from Washington, DC; financial support for research-related travel to institutions within the DAAD center network (Centers for German and European Studies) in North America; and office space at the Institute.
During their tenure, DAAD/AICGS Research Fellows will be expected to present their research results at a workshop to the broader Washington, DC, policy community and 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. AICGS welcomes applications from individuals at academic institutions, think tanks, and public policy and research organizations who focus on subject areas dealing with transatlantic relations, primarily policy, politics, economics, law, education, social sciences, and humanities. The fellowship is open to individuals with German and other nationalities as follows:
- German nationals who are doctoral candidates, junior academics, and academics;
- Foreign (non-German) doctoral candidates, junior academics, and academics permanently living in Germany;
- German and foreign doctoral candidates, junior academics, and academics at the network centers of currently or formerly supported DAAD Centers for German and European Studies outside of the United States.
