The American Friends of Marbach (AFM) are able to award four dissertation grants of $4,000 each to PhD candidates from American universities doing research in the field of German Studies at the Deutsche Literaturarchiv (DLA) in Marbach. Two of these stipends, which are normally meant to be taken over the summer break, have been granted by the Max Kade Foundation in New York; one is named after their donors “The David Detjen Research Grant;” and the fourth is the recently established “AFM Dissertation Grant.” In addition, the American Friends of Marbach are able to offer an “AFM Travel Grant” in the amount of $2,000, also intended for PhD candidates at American universities doing research at the DLA in the field of German Studies.
All grantees benefit from the excellent services that the DLA provides to researchers. Upon arrival, each grantee is welcomed by a staff member of the DLA who assists in determining the shape and goals of the research visit, and who serves as contact person for the duration of the stay. Researchers can also participate in a weekly “Stipendiaten-Café,” where international stipend-holders and fellow humanists have the opportunity to network and present their work to one another. Depending on availability, the well-appointed Kollegienhaus on the grounds of the DLA offers an excellent option for lodging.
Please submit a 1-2 page project description which should include a brief statement about the relevance of the holdings at the DLA for the project, a current CV, and arrange for one letter of recommendation from the dissertation adviser to Prof. Johannes von Moltke (University of Michigan): [email protected] by March 16, 2018. The decision will be announced in mid-April.

Center for Communal Studies
University of Southern Indiana
Research Travel Grant
The Center for Communal Studies at the University of Southern Indiana annually invites applications for a Research Travel Grant to fund research at the Communal Studies Collection at USI’s David L. Rice Library. The Communal Studies Collection’s rich archival materials hold information on over 600 historic and contemporary communal societies, utopias and intentional communities. A complete listing of communities can be found on the Rice Library website. Strengths include materials on the Harmonists and Owenites who settled nearby New Harmony, Indiana, but the breadth of the collections covers American communalism more broadly. Applicants may be graduate students or established scholars in the United States or abroad from any discipline that involves the study of communalism (such as history, English, anthropology, economics, sociology, etc.). The grant will fund research up to $2,000 to be used by June 30 of the subsequent year. All applications must include a letter detailing the project and its significance to communal studies, a proposed budget and a vita. Applications are due annually by 1 May. The winner of this Research Travel Grant is announced annually in June 2018.
Please send materials as email attachments to Casey Harison at [email protected].
