Visiting Fellows Program: AICGS (American Institute for Contemporary German Studies) is now accepting applications for in-residence Visiting Fellows.
AICGS Visiting Fellows Program is designed to provide scholars and specialists with a base while conducting their research in Washington, DC.
Visiting Fellows’ research projects should fit under one or more of the Institute’s three research and programming areas:
- Foreign and Domestic Policy
- Society, Culture and Politics
Within these three program areas, AICGS focuses on specific projects that address emerging issues relevant to a changing transatlantic relationship. Visiting Fellows who are working on similar issues may benefit particularly from a research stay at AICGS. The Program, however, accepts fellows working on a variety of topics.
Qualifications / Requirements

- Visiting Fellows must cover the use of office space at AICGS and incidentals, such as phone/supplies/postage.
- Foreign nationals must be eligible to travel to the U.S.
