Goldman Fellowships 2010 By The American Council on Germany


The Dr. Guido Goldman Fellowship for the Study of German and European Politics, Political Economy, and International Affairs was established in 2003 to promote the study of German and European issues by American scholars in relatively early stages of their careers.

Since reunification in 1990, Germany has realized greater significance as an economic and political powerhouse, both in Europe and on a global level. Because of its status as a reunited sovereign nation, a leading member of the European Union, and a key partner in NATO, understanding contemporary Germany is of great importance. American scholars, journalists, and analysts can play a role in addressing the key issues in Germany – and Europe as a whole.

The American Council on Germany’s Dr. Guido Goldman Fellowship is intended to help analysts better understand Germany. Dr. Goldman is a political scientist and longtime Board member of the American Council on Germany. He is also Director of German Studies at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard University and Co-Chairman of the Board of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. He has devoted his career to the study of economics and foreign relations as they apply to Germany, Europe, and North America. The Dr. Guido Goldman Fellowship is intended to foster the study of European economic and international affairs. Topics that would fall under the rubric of the fellowship include the formulation of German economic and foreign policy and the evolution of U.S.-European relations. Fellows are required to develop research itineraries in consultation with the American Council on Germany.

The Dr. Guido Goldman Fellowship award covers the cost of pre-approved international and domestic travel and a per diem of $200 for up to 28 days in Germany and elsewhere in Europe relevant to the research being conducted. Following the completion of the trip, fellows submit a report summarizing their findings.

Fellows are selected through a competitive application process. The selection committee for the Dr. Guido Goldman Fellowship will evaluate applications based on: the contribution the project will make to an understanding of the economics and foreign relations of Germany, Europe, and North America; the feasibility of the proposed project; the training of the applicant; and the scholarly potential of the applicant. While applicants should demonstrate an interest in German and European affairs, no prior experience in Germany or Europe is required. The fellowship program aims to serve academics in relatively early stages of their careers (including individuals enrolled in Ph.D. programs who are finishing their dissertation). All applicants must hold United States citizenship. Knowledge of the German language is not a prerequisite.

Applicants should submit the following materials:
1) A cover letter, outlining the applicant’s professional and personal objectives for the fellowship;
2) A project proposal of at least two pages;
3) A current CV; and
4) Two letters of reference.

Send all materials to:
Selection Committee, Goldman Fellowship Program
American Council on Germany
14 East 60th Street, Suite 1000
New York, NY 10022 USA

Application postmark deadline: Wednesday, June 30, 2010
