The Einstein Fellowship Awarded by the Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation

The Einstein Fellowship  Awarded by the Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz  Foundation
The Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation are
 offering a fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who
  wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of
  their previous research. The purpose of the fellowship is to
  support those who, in addition to producing extraordinary
  work in their area of specialization, are also open to
  other, interdisciplinary approaches ? following the example
  set by Albert Einstein.
  > The fellowship includes living accommodations for five to
  six months in the gardener`s cottage of Einstein`s own
  summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a short distance
  away from the universities and academic institutions of
  Potsdam and Berlin. The fellow will receive a stipend of EUR
  10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses.
  > Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in
  the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural
  sciences. Applications for 2012 should include a CV, a
  two-page project proposal, and two letters of
  recommendation. All documents must be received by May 20,
  2011. Please send applications to:
   Prof. Dr. Susan Neiman
  Einstein Forum
  Am Neuen Markt 7
  14467 Potsdam
   Or email to: einsteinforum(at)
  phone: +49-(0)331-271780
  fax: +49-(0)331-2717827
   At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be
  expected to present his or her project in a public lecture
  at the Einstein Forum and at the Daimler and Benz
  Foundation. The Einstein Fellowship is not intended for
  applicants who wish to complete an academic study they have
  already started work on.
  A successful application must demonstrate the quality,
  originality, and feasibility of the proposed project, as
  well as the superior intellectual development of the
  applicant. It is not relevant whether the applicant has
  begun working toward, or currently holds, a PhD.
   The Albert Einstein Fellowship
  supports creative, interdisciplinary thought by giving
  young scholars the chance to pursue research outside their
  previous area of work.
