Since its establishment in 2016, the German Kennedy Memorial Fellowship has supported highly accomplished EU social scientists (other than from Germany) to undertake year-long research at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES). The first Fellowship was awarded in 2017.
CES encourages applications from scholars of all social science disciplines whose work is related to modern Europe and/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 New Research on Europe Seminar where work in progress is presented to colleagues for feedback.
