The American Friends of Marbach (AFM) award four dissertation grants of $4.000 each. They are meant for Ph.D. candidates from American universities doing research in the field of German Studies at the Deutsche Literaturarchiv (DLA) in Marbach (normally during the summer break). Two of these stipends have been granted by the Max Kade Foundation in New York, and one is named after their donors “The David Detjen Research Grant”, and the fourth one is the newly established “AFM Dissertation Grant”. In addition the American Friends of Marbach have an AFM Travel Grant of $2.000 available, also meant for dissertation candidates at American universities doing research at the DLA in the field of German Studies. Please submit a 1-2 page project description which should include a brief statement about the relevance of the holdings at the DLA for the project, a current C.V. and one letter of recommendation from the dissertation adviser to Prof. Johannes von Moltke (University of Michigan): moltke@umich.edu, by March 17, 2017. The decision will be announced in mid-April.
