The German Historical Institute, Washington, DC, is now accepting applications for a 6 to 12-month doctoral fellowship in African American History. The recipient should begin the term September 1, 2013.
The fellow will be expected to be in residence at the GHI and participate in GHI activities and events. The fellow will have the opportunity to make use of the resources in the Washington, DC, area, including the Library of Congress and the National Archives, while pursuing his or her own research agenda. Travel within the US to work in archives and libraries will also be possible.
The monthly stipend is €1,700 for doctoral students from European institutions; students based at North American institutions will receive a stipend of $1,900. In addition, fellowship recipients based in Europe will receive reimbursement for their round-trip airfare to the US.
While applications may be written in either English or German, we recommend that applicants use the language in which they are most proficient. They will be notified approximately six weeks after the deadline.
To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, two letters of reference, and a 5-page research project proposal by February 15, 2013. Submission of documents by email is strongly preferred. Please send an email with your application to Bryan Hart (firstname.lastname@example.org).
