>Scholarships for graduate students and young scholars
>
>Our foundation was established by the Parliament of Berlin in 1994 as a
>late sign of gratitude to the Allied Forces who occupied, befriended,
>and protected Berlin and its citizens for almost fifty years after the
>end of World War II. The representatives of Berlin created the Study
>Foundation to sustain and develop contact with France, Great Britain,
>the United States, Russia and other successor states of the former
>Soviet Union.
>
>The "Studienstiftung des Abgeordnetenhauses von Berlin" sponsors a
>scholarship program that aims at promoting young scholars from the
>above-mentioned countries. The applicants should be working on projects
>concerned with Berlin, Germany or German-international issues. We also
>welcome projects that require access to research facilities in Berlin.
>Our main target groups include the humanities and the social sciences,
>but we remain open to other disciplines as well.
>
>The grants are awarded according to academic achievements. Presently,
>the Study Foundation awards about 20 twelve-month grants per year. As a
>rule, the stipend amounts up to 770 EUR for pre-doctoral students and
>up to 1,300 EUR for post-doctoral scholars per month. In addition, the
>foundation assumes travel costs as well as rental costs for housing at
>the International Study Centre in Berlin.
>
>During their twelve month stay in Berlin, grant winners will not only
>be offered the opportunity to experience their disciplines from an
>international perspective, but they will also be encouraged to learn
>more about the people and culture of Berlin.
>
>Are you interested? Then take a look at our website
