Leibniz-Institute of European History Fellowships for Doctoral Students, The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards research fellowships to young academics (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers) from Germany and abroad. Funding is provided for both doctoral and postdoctoral research dealing with the religious, political, social and cultural history of Europe from the early modern period to 1989/90. Comparative, transnational and transfer-historical research projects are particularly welcome, as are projects which deal with topics of intellectual, church or theological history.
The fellowships are exclusively for the purpose of conducting the research project described in the application at the IEG. Thus, no other form of employment or funding can be pursued or availed of during the duration of the fellowship.
The next deadline for applications is February 15, 2022 for fellowships beginning in September 2022 or later.
These are open to PhD students from Germany and abroad who have at least a Masters level degree in history, theology or another discipline which works historically. They must have been pursuing their doctorate for no more than three years at the time of taking up the fellowship, though exceptions may be made in exceptional circumstances. As a research institution that is not part of a university, the Institute does not hold any examinations and does not award any academic qualifications.

The IEG has two deadlines each year for IEG Fellowships for Doctoral Students: February 15 and August 15.
