Gerald D. Feldman Travel Grants
Once a year, supported by the Peters Beer Foundation, part of the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (Donors' Association for the Promotion of Humanities and Sciences in Germany), the Max Weber Foundation (MWS) confers Gerald D. Feldman Travel Grants to young academics with an international focus.
The travel grants are meant to improve the career opportunities for humanities and social science academics in their qualification phase. The scientists conduct a self-chosen research project in at least two and at most three host countries which are home to MWS institutes and branches or at the Richard Koebner Minerva Center for German History. The total term of funding shall not exceed three months. Placements (at most one month per host country, shorter stays are possible) are to be used for research, especially in libraries and archives. Academics are expected to produce transnational and transregional studies, providing research with new and original ideas. The research placements should ideally be completed within 12 months, or at most 24.
Funding is based on the rates of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and covers:
- documented travel costs for travel to the foreign institute and back (least expensive route);
- daily rates between € 27.00 and € 58.00 depending on the host country;
- lodging in one of the institute’s inexpensive guest rooms depending on the host country chosen and on availability.
The next deadline for applications is 13 October 2017.
