The financial support of the Gerda Henkel Foundation and the Elise and Annemarie Jacobi Foundation, in accordance with the will of Mrs. Annemarie Jacobi, makes it possible for Commission for Ancient History and Epigraphy of the German Archaeological Institute to support graduate students “of outstanding ability and limited financial freedom” from all countries of the world who are currently preparing or completing doctoral dissertations in the field of Ancient History and closely associated fields. Work on the publication of a dissertation can also be supported as long as the date of the examination is no more than six months prior to the date of the application.
The Commission hereby advertises scholarships for German and foreign doctoral students to enable research stays at its library, which is excellently equipped for work on Ancient History. The planned stay should be of a duration of three months – according to the quarters of the year.
In addition to a desk in the library, candidates will receive free accommodation in a fully furnished apartment on site, a reimbursement of their travel costs up to a maximum, and a monthly subsidy for living costs.
Applications are possible four times a year (by 1 January, 1 April, 1 July, and 1 October). They should be submitted at least six months before the beginning of the scholarship.
