Grant Program of the Berlin House of Representatives

The Grant Programme of the Berlin House of Representatives awards funding to young researchers of excellent academic merit from all disciplines from the United States, the United Kingdom, France and the successor states of the Soviet Union. Eligible to apply are either candidates researching Berlin and, therefore, German issues or those concerning the German international relations, or candidates working on projects requiring access to the Berlin research institutions.

The grants are awarded according to various criteria, above all academic achievement and civic engagement.

The Study Foundation awards about 15 grants per year. The grants amount to 1,100 EUR for graduate and doctoral students and 1,630 EUR for post-doctoral scholars per month including the rental costs for the International Study Centre Berlin. In addition, the Foundation assumes travel costs to and from Berlin.

During their 10-month stay grant recipients will not only experience their research areas from an international perspective, but also the political, cultural and social dimensions of public life in Berlin.
