The Berlin Prize 
Call for Applications 2016/2017
The American Academy in Berlin invites applications for its residential fellowships for the academic year 2016/2017. The deadline is Wednesday, September 30, 2015 (12 noon EST or 6 pm CET). Applications may be submitted online or mailed to the Berlin office.
The Academy welcomes applications from emerging and established scholars, writers, and professionals who wish to engage in independent study in Berlin. Approximately 20 Berlin Prizes are conferred annually. Past recipients have included historians, economists, poets and novelists, journalists, legal scholars, anthropologists, musicologists, and public policy experts, among others.
Fellowships are typically awarded for an academic semester or, on occasion, for an entire academic year. Bosch Fellowships in Public Policy may be awarded for shorter stays of six to eight weeks. Benefits include round-trip airfare, partial board, a $5,000 monthly stipend, and accommodations at the Academy’s lakeside Hans Arnhold Center in the Berlin-Wannsee district.
Fellowships are restricted to individuals based permanently in the United States. Candidates in academic disciplines must have completed a PhD at the time of application. Candidates working in other fields—such as journalism, filmmaking, law, or public policy—must have equivalent professional degrees. Writers should have published at least one book at the time of application. The Academy gives priority to a proposal’s scholarly merit rather than any specific relevance to Germany.
Please note that the Inga Maren Otto Berlin Prize in Music Composition and the Guna S. Mundheim Berlin Prize in the Visual Artsare invitation-only competitions. We also do not accept applications in mathematics and the hard sciences.
Following a peer-reviewed evaluation process, an independent Selection Committee reviews finalist applications. The 2016/2017 Berlin Prizes will be announced in late February 2016.
