Launched in 2009, the International Scholarship Program offers scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend one to three months on a research residency at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. The program supports research projects that bear direct relation to the diverse institutions and rich collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. It aims to strengthen the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s position within the international scholarly network and is therefore aimed specifically at foreign scholars who do not reside in Germany. The program especially promotes young researchers. The scholarships allow researchers to work on their project and make professional contacts at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. As a result, they also get to participate in the scholarly and cultural life within the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz.
Graduate scholars, postgraduates and doctoral candidates as well as post-docs and professors who do not have their residence in Germany are eligible for application. The applicants must hold at least a first university degree at the time of application.
The application for a grant for 2016 has to be handed in by 31 July 2015 (postmark). The application has to be submitted directly to the Director General of the SMB.
