This fellowship program is open to graduate students based at Asian, African, or Latin American institutions. Applicants should demonstrate their commitment to a research topic related to the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine, or Science and Technology Studies, and a need to work with an international community at the MPIWG in Berlin, in order to prepare and publish their first single-authored research paper in the English language.
Candidates are expected to have already completed the archival research for their thesis and to be in a position to devote six months to writing and preparing an article in English for journal publication. Regular meetings will be held to support both the writing process and academic development.
Please note that this fellowship program will be on pause in 2022 as the MPIWG prepares to launch the International Max Planck Research School on "Knowledge and Its Resources: Historical Reciprocities" (IMPRS-KIR).
