The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg will award 3 to 6 Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowships and 6 to 12 Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships for the academic year 2011/12.
The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg is an independent academic institution in the centre of the venerable Hanseatic and university city on the Baltic Sea. Together with the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung established it in order to enhance the excellence of the University.
Academics who have proven themselves by outstanding research and teaching may apply for an Alfried Krupp Senior Fellowship. The Alfried Krupp Junior Fellowships are awarded to particularly qualified young academics with doctorates.
The Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg enables the fellows to concentrate on a major scientific or scholarly project, free of extensive teaching duties. The Institute also offers the opportunity to discuss their discipline with colleagues and students at the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald. A joint application by several people who wish to realize a project in Greifswald in interdisciplinary and international cooperation is also possible.
Fellows are appointed either for a semester (October 1 to March 31 or April 1 to September 30) or for a whole academic year (October 1 to September 30). Accommodation and working facilities are provided rent-free. The fellowships are endowed in accordance with the high expectations placed in the applicants’ academic performance.
