In response to the Russian war against Ukraine, the German Historical Institute Paris is awarding scholarships for a research visit to France and invites applications from postgraduate students (advanced master’s and doctoral) and postdoctoral researchers whose research projects are in the field of European, African or digital history. This offer is open to applicants from Ukraine who have a sufficiently good command of German, French or English to collaborate with colleagues from the German Historical Institute Paris. The scholarship is worth €2,500 per month for holders of a Doctor of Science (or equivalent), €2,000 for postdoctoral researchers, €1,500 for doctoral students and €1,200 for master’s students.
Through these scholarships, the German Historical Institute Paris is supporting research projects for which a stay in France would be beneficial. The part of France where the researcher will be based will depend on the specific requirements of the research project (the location of archives, libraries, and so on).
Scholarships will be awarded for a period of up to three months, at the end of which another application may be made for a further three months. For master’s students, scholarships are for a maximum of one to three months. Applications may be submitted at any time.
