About

The Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation are offering a fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of their previous research.

The purpose of the fellowship is to support those who, in addition to producing superb work in their area of specialization, are also open to other, interdisciplinary approaches – following the example set by Albert Einstein.

The Einstein Forum is a foundation of the German federal state of Brandenburg that serves the public as an open laboratory of the mind. Through a varied program of conferences, workshops, podium discussions, and lectures it brings together original thinkers from all over the world to test new ideas—and interrogate conventional ones—with a general audience.

Fellowship

The fellowship includes living accommodations for five to six months in the garden cottage of Einstein`s own summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a short distance away from the universities and academic institutions of Potsdam and Berlin. The fellow will receive a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses.

At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be expected to present his or her project in a public lecture at the Einstein Forum and at the Daimler and Benz Foundation. The Einstein Fellowship is not intended for applicants who wish to complete an academic study they have already begun.

Eligibility
  • Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural sciences.
  • Applications for 2021 should include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation.
  • All documents must be received by May 15, 2020.
How to Apply?
  1. A successful application must demonstrate the quality, originality, and feasibility of the proposed project, as well as the superior intellectual development of the applicant.
  2. It is not relevant whether the applicant has begun working toward, or currently holds, a Ph.D.
  3. The proposed project need not be entirely completed during the time of the fellowship but can be the beginning of a longer project.
  4. Please note that no fellowships will be given for dissertation research and the proposed projects must be significantly different in content.
  5. Candidates are requested to send their application form to einsteinforum@einsteinforum.de.
