Otto Bennemann Grant 2023

The aim of the grant is to promote innovative work in the fields of textbook and educational media research. Applications are welcomed from established academics and from individuals in Germany and around the world who work on textbook composition, for textbook publishers or whose didactic work significantly influences curricula and textbooks. The grant enables recipients to spend a dedicated period using the research library and meeting with colleagues to exchange ideas and information.

The grant award is 2,000 EUR a month and generally covers research stays of four to six weeks duration. Travel allowances in form of a lump sum determined by the institute may be payable to fellowship recipients who have to travel a long distance, provided funds are available. Applicants that intend to apply for a travel allowance must state this in their application.
