Dr. Richard M. Hunt Fellowship 2024 for the Study of German Politics, Society & Culture 

Application Deadline:  June 1, 2024.

The Dr. Richard M. Hunt Fellowship for the Study of German Politics, Society, and Culture was established in 2003 to support the next generation of American academics whose research contributes to the scholarly discourse on contemporary German society and the political, cultural, and social history of Germany. Hunt Fellows undertake archival research, conduct interviews, and meet with their transatlantic counterparts to gain a better understanding of German society.


  • Applicants should present a project proposal of three to five pages detailing their plans, including the background, scope of the research, the general sources and institutions with whom they would like to consult, and the relevance for the transatlantic relationship.
  • A research itinerary for the fellowship duration will be further developed with the Program Director.

Upon completion of the fellowship, fellows are required to submit an analytical report on their research findings. This report must be suitable for publication by the American Council on Germany. Fellows are also asked to share their work with a broader audience through presentations and discussions at ACG Warburg Chapters and/or their local communities, as well as on social media.

  • Eligibility

  • Applicants for the program should be American or German mid-career professionals between the ages of 28 and 38, who show promise in their given field.


  • Fellows receive a $7,000 stipend, which covers transatlantic airfare and domestic travel, as well as room and board, for a minimum of 21 days.
  • Fellows must work closely with the ACG to organize a detailed itinerary before the stipend is released.
  • Travel must take place within one calendar year of selection.

Applications are reviewed by a selection committee organized by the American Council on Germany. Applications are evaluated based on: the contribution the project will make to a better understanding of contemporary Germany in a historical context; the feasibility of the proposed project; the training of the applicant; and the scholarly potential of the applicant.

Application Requirements

  • A cover letter outlining your personal and professional objectives for the fellowship;
  • A three- to five-page project proposal as described above;
  • A current resume; and
  • Two letters of recommendation.
