Research Transfers and scholarships

Research Transfers and Scholarships

The German Historical Institute supports an international dialogue among historians by encouraging communication, cooperation and research transfers. The institute’s focus is on the relations between historians in Germany and Poland. Yet, our intermediary role also takes in historical research on neighbouring East-Central European countries; going beyond the discipline of history in Germany, we also address the Western scientific community. In this way, the institute provides a forum for international historical dialogue, employing to this end the proven means of organizing academic events, preparing publications and awarding scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded to support those research projects in the field of Polish, German-Polish and Polish-East-Central European history which would require a stay in the host countries of the institute. The scholarships are intended primarily for younger scholars and are awarded for periods of between one and several months depending on the research project. The decision to award a scholarship is made based on the perceived quality of the proposed research. The institute also takes into account the extent to which the research interest of the project touches thematically on the institute’s current research foci.
