The programme enables academics from all over the world to undertake one-to-three-month research residencies at the Berlin institutions of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (SPK). Funding is available for research projects, if they are related to the multi-faceted institutions of the Foundation. The programme primarily addresses foreign researchers, giving them the opportunity to work in the Foundation's museums, libraries and archives, make professional contacts and participate in the academic and cultural life of the SPK. The scholarship amounts vary depending on the candidates' qualifications. Academics with a first higher-education degree receive 1,300 EUR per month, whereas post-doctoral researchers or applicants with equivalent qualifications are granted 1,600 EUR each month. In addition, the sponsorship includes a one-off travel allowance of 500 EUR.
The Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation extended its fellowship programme by 20 additional places for refugee Ukrainian (and persecuted Russian/Belarusian) academics and librarians. More information on application deadlines and project requirements can be found on the website
