Honorary Fellowships

Hono­ra­ry Fellowships

The His­to­ri­sches Kol­leg, an Insti­tu­te for Advan­ced Stu­dy of the his­to­ri­cal­ly ori­en­ted disci­pli­nes, has added ano­ther opti­on to its ran­ge of scho­lar­ships. Twice a year, out­stan­ding scho­lars can app­ly to live and con­duct rese­arch at the His­to­ri­sches Kol­leg in the imme­dia­te vici­ni­ty of the Baye­ri­sche Staats­bi­blio­thek for shorter peri­ods of time (maxi­mum six months).

This gives for¬≠mer fel¬≠lows and scho¬≠lars from Ger¬≠ma¬≠ny and abroad, who have alre¬≠a¬≠dy reti¬≠red from uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty ser¬≠vice or who are acti¬≠ve uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty tea¬≠chers inte¬≠res¬≠ted in spen¬≠ding their sab¬≠ba¬≠ti¬≠cal in a dif¬≠fe¬≠rent coun¬≠try, the oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty to use the inspi¬≠ring atmo¬≠sphe¬≠re of the artists‚Äė vil¬≠la (built by Gabri¬≠el von Seidl in the heart of Munich) to com¬≠ple¬≠te a major sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic project.

The Hono­ra­ry Fel­low is a guest of the His­to­ri­sches Kol­leg and can live and work in the Kaul­bach-Vil­la. The tech­ni­cal and per­son­nel infra­struc­tu­re of the house is at her or his dis­po­sal for sci­en­ti­fic work. No remu­ne­ra­ti­on is gran­ted. It is expec­ted that the fel­low­ship reci­pi­ent will pre­sent the topic to an aca­de­mic audi­ence in a lec­tu­re (or pos­si­bly in ano­ther form of talk/discussion) during their stay at the Kol­leg. The fel­low will be inte­gra­ted into the life of the Kol­leg (col­lo­quia, etc.) and will bene­fit from the wide ran­ge of ser­vices offe­red by Munich as a sci­en­ti­fic location.

The sel­ec­tion of fel­lows is deci­ded by the Board of Trus­tees at its regu­lar mee­tings in ear­ly July and ear­ly Novem­ber each year. Infor­mal appli­ca­ti­ons (pro­ject out­line of 5 pages maxi­mum) should be sent to the mana­ging direc­tor of the His­to­ri­sches Kol­leg, sta­ting the desi­red scho­lar­ship start date and period.
