Visiting fellowships at the Collegium Carolinum
The Collegium Carolinum awards visiting fellowships for a month-long research visit to Munich. The offer is directed to younger researchers (whether graduates or post-graduates) working using methodologically or thematically innovative approaches to study of the history and culture of the Bohemian Lands, of Czechoslovakia, the Czech lands or Slovakia and the neighbouring regions.
The visiting fellowship to Munich provides the opportunity to make use of the research library and the other collections of the Collegium Carolinum. Apart from providing support for all research needs, the institute also provides an excellent location for academic discussion and exchange. Munich as a location – with its libraries, archives and research centres – provides first class facilities for research.
The visiting fellowship is limited to a month-long stay. The amount of the grant will be a single payment of €1,500 for doctoral candidates, while researchers who have already been awarded a doctorate will receive a payment of €2,000. Travel costs (both inward and outward) will be provided up to the cost of a rail ticket (2nd class).
All applications must include the following materials:
- A letter of motivation, setting out why the study visit to the Collegium Carolinum is necessary for the project being pursued by the candidate (max. 1 page)
- An presentation of the research project, including details on the current state of research, its goals and the work already completed (max. 3 pages)
- Personal details: CV, academic qualificaiton, list of publications, if necessary selected (max. 2 pages)
- University certificates (final)
The period for application will be made known by means of an advertisement.
