German National Academic Foundation: Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme

Programme Description

The international Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme awards grants to doctoral students who carry out research into the history and culture of Central European Jewry. Projects on any period or field (including literature, philosophy, history, musicology) are welcome, and any region (i.e., Europe, Israel, the Americas), as long as they relate to German-speaking Jewry.

In addition to financial support over 1 year, the programme offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and network. It is open to doctoral candidates of any nationality, studying at any university. All fellows remain at their home institutions, but get together for 2 workshops which are jointly organised by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and the Leo Baeck Institute London.

The fellows are granted a stipend of 1,350 EUR per month together with a research cost allowance of 100 EUR. If necessary, a health insurance allowance of up to 100 EUR will also be included. In addition, allowances for fellows with children or for a (part-time) stay abroad are paid. For research trips and conference participation monthly supplements and travel allowances are available on application. To support doctoral studies abroad fellows may apply for a monthly grant, and, where applicable, a grant to tuition fees of up to 10,000 EUR.

The funding complies with the guidelines on the promotion of talented junior researchers by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

After the first year, students enrolled at a higher education Institution in Germany may apply for an extension, provided that the Studienstiftung has funding available.
