International fellowship programme for sabbatical leave and research residencies at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin

Launched in 2009, the International Fellowship Programme offers scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend one to three months on a research residency at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

The programme supports research projects that bear direct relation to the diverse institutions and rich collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. It aims to strengthen the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s position within the international scholarly network and is therefore aimed specifically at foreign scholars who do not reside in Germany. The programme especially promotes young researchers. The fellowships allow researchers to work on their project and make professional contacts at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. As a result, they also get to participate in the scholarly and cultural life within the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz.

The International Scholarship Program enables scholars from all over the world to undertake one- to three-month research residencies at the institutions of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin − Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Funding is available for various research projects related to the multifaceted institutions of the SMB. The program aims to strengthen the international network of the SMB and therefore addresses foreign researchers. In addition, the promotion of young researchers is of particular concern to the SMB. The grants are intended to enable scientists to work on their own research project at the SMB, make professional contacts and participate in the academic and cultural life of the SMB.
