The Rachel Carson Center is part of a funding scheme launched by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) that was devised to internationalize the humanities in Germany. Thus, bringing international scholars to Munich through our Carson Fellowship Program is at the very core of our activities.
Carson Fellows are expected to work in residence on a major research project that pertains to one or more of our research themes. They should also engage with other fellows and contribute to the programs at the center.
The program is a writing fellowship program; we do not sponsor field trips or archival research.
The deadline for fellowship applications for the 2014-15 class of postdoctoral and senior fellows was 31 May 2014. A call for fellows for 2015-16 will be posted in late 2014. The length of individual fellowships are flexible.
