submitted online or mailed to the Berlin office.
The Academy welcomes applications from emerging and established scholars,

Berlin. Approximately 20 Berlin Prizes are conferred annually. Past
recipients have included historians, economists, poets and novelists,
journalists, legal scholars, anthropologists, musicologists, and public
policy experts, among others.
Fellowships are typically awarded for an academic semester or, on occasion,
for an entire academic year. Bosch Fellowships in Public Policy may be
awarded for shorter stays of six to eight weeks. Benefits include
round-trip airfare, partial board, a $5,000 monthly stipend, and

equivalent professional degrees. Writers must have published at least one
book at the time of application. Candidates should explain how their
projects will benefit from a residency in Berlin, but they do not need to
be working on German topics.
