Kerstin Leitner Berlin Fellowship

The program offers a stimulating academic environment that combines excellent research opportunities with intellectual and cultural interaction. With its four universities, 60 research institutes and numerous state and national archives, Berlin is one of the most diverse and prolific centers of higher education and research in Europe.

Our colloquium — which is run in German — serves as a central meeting point for all fellows to share, discuss and support each other’s work. Guided by eminent scholars each semester, the program colloquium also seeks to address current German public debates, invites distinguished guests and arranges cultural excursions.

The Berlin Program is a residential program based at Freie Universität Berlin and administered in close cooperation with our North American partner, the German Studies Association (GSA) — the largest professional association of scholars, professionals and students who focus on the study of German-speaking Europe (www.thegsa.org).

The program promotes a new generation of young North American scholars with specialized knowledge of modern and contemporary Germany and Europe.
