The Georg Eckert Fellowship programme aims to give both young and established scholars and textbook authors the opportunity to have extensive access to the text book collections in the institute library, to work comparatively and to intensively exchange information with colleagues in Germany and abroad. The Institute enables its research fellows to pursue their own research free from other obligations. The GEI staff advise the research fellows on organisational and theoretical issues so that they find a forum of lively academic discussion at the institute and open international as well as inter-disciplinary communication.
The Institute’s research fellowships are financed by the Federal Foreign Office and by the Friends and Supporters of the Georg Eckert Institute. The Georg Eckert Institute awards short-term research fellowships of between four and six weeks duration. Applications should be submitted by post or, preferably by email before 15 September of a given year for fellowships in the following year. Further details on the application procedure *here*.
The Institute also awards the Otto-Bennemann-Grant for promoting methodologically innovative studies on international textbook research, and, once every four years, the Robert-Hermann-Tenbrock-Grant for research on Europe. A new addition is the Georg Arnhold Professorship Program.
