The GHI awards short-term fellowships to European and North American doctoral students as well as postdoctoral scholars to pursue research projects that draw upon primary sources located in the United States.
GHI is particularly interested in research projects that fit into the following fields:
The proposed research projects should make use of historical methods and engage with the relevant historiography. GHI especially invites applications from doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars who currently have no funding from their home institutions.
Applicants should be based at (or recent graduates of) a North American or European university or research institute.
For doctoral students applying, ABD status is required before starting the fellowship.
For postdoctoral scholars applying, the preference is for projects that are designed for the "second book" (Habilitation or equivalent).
The proposed project should require primary research in the United States.
fellowships are usually granted for periods of one to five months but,
in exceptional cases and depending on the availability of funds, they
can be extended by one month.
The GHI will not provide funding for preliminary research, manuscript composition, or the revision of manuscripts. It will give clear priority to those postdoc projects that are designed for the "second book." The fellowship is open to both doctoral and postdoctoral scholars based in North America and Europe. The monthly stipend is € 2,000 for doctoral students and € 3,400 for postdoctoral scholars. In addition, fellowship recipients based in Europe will receive reimbursement for their round-trip airfare to the U.S.
