The Germany Residency Program

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 residency has been postponed until 2021. The residency recipient has been selected, so there will be no competition in 2020 for the 2021 residency. We plan to have information on the 2022 residency available on the website by the summer of 2021.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the OAH International Committee is pleased to announce the continuation of the Residency Program in American History—Germany (Germany Residency Program) at the University of Tübingen.

The International Committee seeks applications from OAH members who are established scholars affiliated with an American or Canadian University interested in leading an advanced undergraduate/graduate student seminar in Tübingen.

The course would take place for a period of four to five weeks during the summer of 2022.

The seminar will cover a topic of U.S. History or the History of Transatlantic Relations of an applicant’s design. All fields and methodologies are welcome. The language of instruction is English.

The Residency Program will provide round-trip airfare, housing for thirty days, a modest honorarium (around $1,000), support by a graduate assistant, and office space.

Tübingen is located in southwestern Germany, 25 miles south of Stuttgart. It is one of Germany’s oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education and has a vibrant community engaged in the study of the United States.

The application process for the Germany residency program requires a short CV and an outline of the planned seminar.
