Apply now! Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme 2021/22 (Studienstiftung/Leo Baeck Institute London)

The international Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme, jointly organised by Leo Baeck Institute London and the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes, awards fellowships 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), and any region (such as Europe, Israel, the Americas) are welcome, as long as they relate to German-speaking Jewry. In addition to financial support for one year, the programme provides opportunities to exchange ideas with peers from around the world. It is open to doctoral candidates of any nationality, studying at any university, worldwide. All fellows remain at their home institution, but come together for two workshops in the course of the fellowship.

Fellows receive a stipend of 1,350 € a month. In addition, a monthly research allowance of 100 € is available. Fellows may also apply for supplements for health insurance (max. 100 €/month) and childcare, as well as travel allowances to support research trips and participation at conferences abroad. Contributions to tuition fees outside Germany may also be granted (max. 10,000 €) and monthly supplements outside Germany.

The deadline for application is February 1st, 2021.
