The His­to­ri­sches Kol­leg in Munich is an Insti­tu­te for Advan­ced Stu­dy of all histo­ry-rela­ted disci­pli­nes. It is housed in the Kaul­bach Vil­la bet­ween the Bava­ri­an Sta­te Libra­ry and the Eng­lish Gar­den. Fel­low­ships at the Kol­leg grant scho­lars the free­dom to con­cen­tra­te on com­ple­ting a book pro­ject. This core idea of the Kol­leg has hel­ped pro­du­ce many impactful books, many of which have found favour even bey­ond the field of histo­ry its­elf. As a venue for aca­de­mic col­lo­quia and lec­tures, the Kol­leg is a lively cent­re of his­to­ri­cal research.

The Fel¬≠lows are sel¬≠ec¬≠ted by the board of trus¬≠tees of the His¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠sches Kol¬≠leg with the sup¬≠port of exter¬≠nal expert advi¬≠sors. The appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on dead¬≠line is 30 April 2023. All appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons will be trea¬≠ted con¬≠fi¬≠den¬≠ti¬≠al¬≠ly. All decis¬≠i¬≠ons are final.

The His¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠sches Kol¬≠leg in Munich is an Insti¬≠tu¬≠te for Advan¬≠ced Stu¬≠dy of the his¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠cal¬≠ly ori¬≠en¬≠ted sci¬≠en¬≠ces. Sin¬≠ce 1988, the His¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠sches Kol¬≠leg has been loca¬≠ted in the Kaul¬≠bach Vil¬≠la, situa¬≠ted bet¬≠ween the Bava¬≠ri¬≠an Sta¬≠te Libra¬≠ry and the Eng¬≠lish Gar¬≠den. It grants scho¬≠lars the free¬≠dom to com¬≠ple¬≠te a book pro¬≠ject in a con¬≠cen¬≠tra¬≠ted man¬≠ner through scho¬≠lar¬≠ships. This foun¬≠ding idea of the col¬≠lege has given rise to num¬≠e¬≠rous works that have had an impact bey¬≠ond the disci¬≠pli¬≠ne. As a venue for sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic col¬≠lo¬≠quia and lec¬≠tures, it is a lively cen¬≠ter of his¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠cal research. 

During the fel¬≠low¬≠ship year, the fel¬≠lows are freed from uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty tea¬≠ching and admi¬≠nis¬≠tra¬≠ti¬≠ve duties and can con¬≠cen¬≠tra¬≠te ful¬≠ly on their sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic pro¬≠jects in a stu¬≠dy in the Kaul¬≠bach Vil¬≠la. In this they are sup¬≠port¬≠ed by the staff as well as the stu¬≠dent assistants of the col¬≠lege. Each Fel¬≠low pres¬≠ents his or her topic at a public lec¬≠tu¬≠re in the Kaul¬≠bach Vil¬≠la during the Kol¬≠leg year. During the stay at the His¬≠to¬≠ri¬≠sches Kol¬≠leg, stu¬≠dents are requi¬≠red to resi¬≠de in Munich. The col¬≠lege office is available to assist in fin¬≠ding housing. Sub¬≠si¬≠dies are pro¬≠vi¬≠ded for relo¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on and ren¬≠tal costs.

Funds for the fel¬≠low¬≠ships come from pri¬≠va¬≠te gran¬≠tors. Curr¬≠ent¬≠ly, the Advan¬≠ced Fel¬≠low¬≠ships are fun¬≠ded by the Fritz Thys¬≠sen Foun¬≠da¬≠ti¬≠on, the Free Sta¬≠te of Bava¬≠ria and the K√§te Ham¬≠bur¬≠ger Cen¬≠ter for Advan¬≠ced Stu¬≠dy in the Huma¬≠ni¬≠ties ‚ÄěDis:connectivity in Glo¬≠ba¬≠liza¬≠ti¬≠on Pro¬≠ces¬≠ses‚Äú.
