Abstract
The IEG awards fellowships for international young researchers in history, theology and other historical sub-jects. The IEG promotes research on the historical foundations of Europe from the early modern period to the 20th century, particularly regarding their religious, political and social dimensions. Projects dealing with Euro-pean communication and transfer processes as well as projects focusing on questions related to theology, church history and intellectual history are particularly welcome.

Research projects should range from 6 to 12 months in projected duration. Applicants must have completed their doctorate no more than three years before taking up the fellowship. Fellows should have a solid command of German in order to participate in discussions at the Institute. Fellows are required to register officially as residents in Mainz and to take part in events at the Institute. Scholarship holders and fellows reside and work in the Institute building in Mainz (duty to reside). Fellows are not permitted to undertake paid work while receiving the IEG scholarship.

The IEG research fellowship programme combines research, training, and international networking. Funding is currently € 1800/month. The Institute’s specialised library and the wider academic infrastructure of Mainz are available for their research.
