The Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation calls applications for the Einstein Fellowship for the year 2021.


The Einstein Fellowship is a program for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of their previous research. The purpose of the fellowship is to support those who, in addition to producing superb work in their area of specialization, are also open to other, interdisciplinary approaches – following the example set by Albert Einstein. In addition to that, the Albert Einstein Fellowship supports creative, interdisciplinary thought by giving young scholars the chance to pursue research outside their previous area of work.


Generally, at the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will have to present his or her project in a public lecture at the Einstein Forum and at the Daimler and Benz Foundation.


The Einstein Fellowship includes living accommodations for five to six months in the garden cottage of Einstein`s own summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a short distance away from the universities and academic institutions of Potsdam and Berlin. In addition to that, the fellow will receive a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses.


Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural sciences. A successful application must demonstrate the quality, originality, and feasibility of the proposed project, as well as the superior intellectual development of the applicant. It is not relevant whether the applicant has begun working toward, or currently holds, a PhD. The proposed project need not be entirely completed during the time of the fellowship but can be the beginning of a longer project.


Interested candidates must apply by email to [email protected]. Applications for 2021 should include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation. The last day to receive the documents is May 15, 2020.
