Paris x Rome Fellowship

The Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte and the German Center for Art History – Institute of the Max Weber Foundation (DFK Paris) annually offer six-month research grants. The funding facilitates research for a period of three months in archives or libraries in Paris and Rome, the exchange of ideas with researchers at the institutes, and engagement with transnational approaches to the history of art in France and Italy. The objective of the fellowship is to support scholarly projects that open up new perspectives in art history via innovative research approaches. At the level of content, a connection to the main research areas of the DFK Paris and of Prof. Dr. Tristan Weddigen’s department at the Bibliotheca Hertziana is desirable.
Predocs and postdocs in art history and related disciplines are invited to apply for the Paris x Rome Fellowship. The award includes reimbursement of travel costs, a subsidy of around 1,750 Euros per 
month towards living expenses (plus a monthly flat-rate subsidy of 250 Euros for material costs and, if applicable, a child allowance), and the use of the resources of the institutes as well as integration into 
their research initiatives. 
The application, which consists of a CV and a project description, can be written in English, German, or French. Good language skills in French and Italian are required. It is a condition of the fellowship 
that the recipients remain in close contact and exchange with the two institutes for the duration of the funding period and that they stay primarily in Paris or Rome.

The call for applications is issued once a year in summer for the following year and is published on the institute's website in the section Opportunities.
