AICGS is now accepting applications for the DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship Program in 2021. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, AICGS anticipates that travel to and in-person residency in Washington, DC, for the fellowship will likely not be possible until spring or summer 2021.
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; financial support for research-related travel to institutions within the DAAD center network in North America; and office space at the Institute.
Please note that the DAAD/AICGS Research Fellowship supports fellows conducting research at AICGS in Washington, DC. It is not possible to support research in Germany/Europe.
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.
