The American Academy in Berlin is a private, independent, nonprofit institute for advanced study located in Berlin, Germany. Its fellowship program promotes advanced research in a variety of disciplines.
Each year the Academy welcomes about twenty fellows to the Hans Arnhold Center, on Lake Wannsee. The Academy also invites a small number of invited Distinguished Visitors for shorter stays of one to four weeks, and organizes a diverse public program that includes lectures and presentations by resident fellows, Distinguished Visitors, and guest speakers. You can find a list of past fellows and Distinguished Visitors on our website.
In addition to placing a high priority on the independent work of its fellows, the Academy is in a unique position to aid fellows in establishing professional networks, both in Berlin and beyond. The Academy’s public atmosphere, which actively encourages fellows to introduce their work to wider audiences, serves its mission of fostering transatlantic ties through cultural exchange.
The application deadline is Monday, September 27, 2021, at 6 p.m. EST. The system would be reopened in mid-June 2022 for fresh applications
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
