DMG Travel Scholarships
Each year, the Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft offers up to three travel scholarships to junior researchers who specialize in a humanities branch of Oriental Studies. Applicants need to hold a Master’s or equivalent degree.
Scholarships include an allowance of up to 2000 Euros for travels that aim at an improvement of language skills and knowledge of the country, and which are designed specifically for the purpose of furthering an envisaged scientific qualification or a particular research project (e.g., archives, libraries, field research) related to the respective country of specialization. Travel costs above 2nd class rail journeys will not be reimbursed by the DMG.
Scholarship holders are obliged to provide the DMG with a final report and statements of account. Scholarship have to make use of their scholarship within two years after approval.
The written report should not exceed five pages and will be published on the DMG homepage.
If so requested by the scholarship holder, an abridged version of the report (not exceeding 600 words) may in addition be read out before the General Assembly (Allgemeine Versammlung) of the DMG.
Applications (CV, outline of the aims of the project, and justification of the need to undertake travel) are to be submitted, no later than the 1st of March of each year, to the First Chairman of the DMG, Prof. Dr. Stefan Weninger, Centrum für Nah- und Mittelost-Studien, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Deutschhausstr. 12, D-35032 Marburg.
Submissions received after this deadline will be considered for the following year.
