Stipends of the Gerda Henkel Foundation and the Elise and Annemarie Jacobi Foundation for Ancient History and Epigraphy at the DAI Munich
Graduate student scholarship
The financial support of the Gerda Henkel Foundation and the Elise and Annemarie Jacobi Foundation, in accordance with the will of Mrs. Annemarie Jacobi, makes it possible for the Commission to support graduate students “of outstanding ability and limited financial freedom” from all countries of the world who are currently preparing or completing dissertations in the field of Ancient History and closely associated fields. Work on the publication of a dissertation can also be supported as long as the date of the dissertation is no more than six months prior to the date of the application. Research projects corresponding to the German concept of “Dissertation” will also be taken into consideration (PhD, Thèse Nouveau Régime etc.).
The Commission hereby advertises scholarships for German and foreign doctoral students to enable research stays at its library, which is excellently equipped for work on Ancient History. The planned stay should be of a duration of about two or three months. In addition to a desk in the library, candidates will receive free accommodation in a fully furnished apartment on site, a reimbursement of their travel costs up to a maximum of EUR 350 (Europe) or EUR 900 (overseas), and a subsidy of EUR 600 per month for their living costs. The successful applicants have to be in residence at the Commission during their scholarship.
Applications in German, English, French, Spanish or Italian are to be accompanied by the following documents:
- A detailed description of the dissertation project (max. 5 pages) with details about its current state of completion
- A work schedule for the stay in Munich
- The proposed duration and dates (with possible alternatives, perhaps even during the following period) for the stay in Munich
- A curriculum vitae
- Copies of the most important existing academic qualifications
- Letters of reference, one from the dissertation supervisor and one from another academic teacher
Applications are possible four times a year (by 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October) and should be directed to the director of the Commission. They should be submitted at least six months before the beginning of the scholarship. Please send them as an e-mail-attachment in a single file to firstname.lastname@example.org
We kindly ask referees to send their letters of reference (1-2 pages) to the same address.
