Herzog August Bibliothek: Doctoral and young scholars fellowships
The Foundation awards sponsorships which are worth EUR 1,100 per month for a period of two to 10 months to visiting scholars. Fellows are accommodated in the library's Wolfenbüttel guest houses for the duration of their fellowship. The rent for the guest houses is paid from the grant sum. Moreover, the grants include an allowance for material expenses of EUR 100 per month. In well-funded cases the sponsorship period can be extended, if applied for.
Former holders of fellowships from the foundations can apply for further financial support. The Footnote Fund supports scholars who are either at the final stage of their doctorate or are working on the revision for the publication and wish to return to the library for a short stay – for example, should they need to review or add further source material. The fellowship is EUR 300 for Germans and EUR 500 for international applicants.
