INFORMATION ABOUT ALL PROGRAMS
The American Academy in Berlin invites applications for its residential fellowships for the academic year 2018/2019.
The Academy seeks to enrich transatlantic dialogues in the arts, humanities, and public policy through the development and communication of projects of the highest scholarly merit. For 2018/2019, the Academy is also interested in considering projects that address the themes of migration and social integration, as well as questions of race in comparative perspective.
For all projects, the Academy asks that candidates explain the relevance of a stay in Berlin to the development of their work.
