In 2017, CES awarded its first Kennedy Fellowship to a non-German scholar from the European Union thanks to a gift by the German Government. Known as the German Kennedy Memorial Fellowship, its goal is to support EU scholars of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishment, who intend to pursue academic careers in Europe.
CES encourages applications in all social science disciplines and on any topic related to modern Europe or transatlantic relations. Applications are judged on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s record of achievement and promise. The Fellowship provides a generous stipend of $60,000 for 10 months of residential research at CES between the months of September and June.
This Fellowship is administered by CES and each application is reviewed by the CES Steering Committee. Fellows are expected to attend a weekly Visiting Scholars Seminar where work in progress is presented to colleagues for feedback.
