The Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey (USA), was founded by Louis Bamberger and his sister Caroline Bamberger Fuld in 1930 and is one of the world's leading research establishments. Each year, about 190 international accredited researchers are invited to the renowned private institute, where they are given the opportunity to pursue their studies in one of the four schools (Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences) without other commitments.
Call for Proposals
Since 1993, the Foundation has maintained a scholarship programme, awarding grants for research at the School of Historical Studies. The Gerda Henkel Fellowship is made available for a period of one academic year. The permanent members of the School of Historical Studies select the candidates in consultation with the Foundation. In 2014, the programme was extended for another five years.
