Fellowships

The Society of Fellows offers several different funding opportunities for its members, including the:

Carson Society Munich Fellowship
The Carson Society Munich Fellowship will support an RCC Society of Fellows member’s return to the RCC in Munich for a three- to six-month period with a stipend of 2,000 euros per month.

The fellowship is intended to provide an RCC Society of Fellows member with more time to work on a research project after their initial RCC fellowship.

An additional stipulation of this fellowship is that the returning fellow will offer a program or a project that gives back in some way to the RCC community, including LMU students, RCC fellows, and the Society of Fellows. For example, the returning fellow might offer a workshop on professional development, writing for a public audience, public speaking, becoming a board member of a nonprofit organization, or promoting and publicizing books. It would be ideal if the program or project also fostered public engagement in the environmental humanities more broadly. The program or project would take place on-site in Munich, but the RCC Society of Fellows member could make it publicly accessible, such as by posting it on the Environment & Society Portal. A desire to give back to the RCC is a common refrain of past fellows, so this fellowship is a great way to fulfill that wish.

Collaborative Project Grant
The Collaborative Project Grant is intended to nurture productive and creative partnerships among RCC Society of Fellows members. Projects must involve at least two RCC Society of Fellows members. The nature of the collaboration is limited only by applicants’ creativity. Collaborations might include a conference panel, a speaker series, a co-authored op-ed or peer-reviewed article, a grant proposal, or a course that two or more fellows will co-teach or design.

The total annual funding for the Collaborative Project grant is 3,000 euros. With this limited budget, we hope to support two or more projects. In keeping with the RCC mission, applicants who bring together people from different disciplines, and from geographic locations that are underrepresented at the RCC, such as Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East, will be given priority.

Public Outreach Grant
The Public Outreach Grant supports a project created by an RCC Society of Fellows member or members that engages a general public audience in the field of environmental humanities. Projects might include, for example, a public lecture, a museum or art exhibition, or a podcast. All types of endeavors geared toward the public will be considered.

The total annual funding for the Public Outreach grant is 3,000 euros. With this limited budget, we hope to support two or more projects. Our goal is to distribute the funds to as many projects as possible while still providing meaningful support.
