Fellowship Program

The heart and central instrument of EUME is its fellowship program. Every year ten postdoctoral scholars of anthropology, art history, history, literature, philology, political science, religion, sociology or Middle Eastern Studies are invited to Berlin to carry out their own research projects in relation to one of the research fields of EUME.

Fellows are invited on the basis of an annual call for applications, and chosen by the members of the Collegium. In Berlin, EUME-fellows are in general associated to a university or research institute headed by one of the Collegium's members  or - depending on their research field - to other cooperating institutes.

EUME-Fellows come together in the Berliner Seminar, in informal discussion of their research projects or in the working meetings of the program. This provides the opportunity to work in a disciplinary and region-specific environment and at the same time facilitates exchange in a  multidisciplinary and transregional perspective.

Since 1997, in the framework of EUME and its preceding project, the Working Group Modernity and Islam (AKMI), over 150 young scholars from North Africa, the Middle East, West and South Asia and other regions have been invited to Berlin as postdoc-fellows.
