Award Details
Grant Activity

Research, teaching or a project combining both activities. Fulbright Germany is particularly interested in research and/or teaching proposals based on comparative approaches and topics as well as in projects with a thematic focus on democracy. Whether conducting research and/or teaching, the specifics of the arrangement have to be coordinated directly with the prospective host institution. Scholars with short-term projects of less than one term (i.e. 2 -3 months) that include a teaching segment need to submit a proposal to teach one or two block seminars over four to six weeks.

Fulbright Scholars in Germany may participate in the Fulbright Intercountry Lectureship Program that provides them with opportunities to enrich their professional and cultural experience outside their host community and country of assignment. There also are many networking opportunities within the German higher education community.

Fulbright Scholars in Germany also are invited to participate in a mid-year meeting in Berlin if the dates coincide with the grant period. The annual Berlin Seminar hosts around 550 Fulbright participants including US grantees in Germany and other European countries as well as German Fulbright candidates going to the U.S.

In addition to a stipend and other allowances (please refer to Stipend & Benefits information), the grant includes private German health insurance coverage.

Grant Length
Two to five months; six to eight months
Grant Dates

Grants are tenable between September 2021 and July 2023, with a start date no later than April 2022. For maximum outreach and impact, the project activities are to take place when German universities are in session, i.e. during the core lecture periods which last from early October until the end of January (fall term) and from early April until the end of July (summer term).

Locations

Applicants are encouraged to arrange affiliation with accredited state-recognized German higher education institutions (resource: Higher Education Compass), or university-affiliated research institutions (resource: Federal Ministry of Education and Research).

Flex grant parameters: the total grant length (over two segments) must be from two months to six months. The minimum length for any one grant segment is one month and the maximum is three months. Two grant segments may be spread over one or two consecutive years.
