Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Fellowships 2023 for Doctoral Students

Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Fellowships 2023 for Doctoral Students (Up to €1,350)


Deadline: August 15, 2022

Applications are open for the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Fellowships 2023. The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) awards research fellowships to young academics (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers) from Germany and abroad.

Funding is provided for both doctoral and postdoctoral research dealing with the religious, political, social, and cultural history of Europe from the early modern period to 1989/90. Comparative, transnational, and transfer-historical research projects are particularly welcome, as are projects which deal with topics of intellectual, church, or theological history.

If they wish, fellowship holders and fellows can collaborate with the academic staff of the IEG in the Institute’s research areas. Each fellowship holder is assigned a contact person from among the academic staff of the IEG who can offer them advice and mentoring. The fellowships are exclusively for the purpose of conducting the research project described in the application at the IEG. Thus, no other form of employment or funding can be pursued or availed of during the duration of the fellowship.


  • IEG Fellowship for doctoral students has a monthly value of €1,350.
  • Fellowship holders whose partners accompany them to Mainz and do not have an income of more than 450 euros per month may receive a family allowance. Please indicate in your application whether your partner accompanies you to Mainz.
  • Fellows who come to Mainz accompanied by their underage children can apply for a child allowance.


  • Open to PhD students from Germany and abroad who have at least a Masters level degree in history, theology or another discipline which works historically.
  • They must have been pursuing their doctorate for no more than three years at the time of taking up the fellowship, though exceptions may be made in exceptional circumstances. As a research institution that is not part of a university, the Institute does not hold any examinations and does not award any academic qualifications. Dissertations are completed under the supervision of the fellowship holder’s supervisor at their home university.


Attach these in the following order:

  • the completed application form
  • curriculum vitae and a list of publications (if applicable) (please do not send photographs)
  • an outline of the Ph.D.-thesis (up to 15,000 characters excluding footnotes and spaces)
  • the structure of the Ph.D.-thesis
  • a detailed timetable for the intended stay at the Institute
  • copies of university transcripts and proof of language competence

Ensure that any attachments are PDF files.
