Carson Fellowships

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 the central theme of the RCC - transformations in environment and society. 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 2015-16 class of postdoctoral and senior fellows is 31 January 2015.
