Scholars at all stages in their careers (Masters and PhD students as well as scholars preparing a publication) are invited to apply.


  • The maximum grant is €600, amount varies based on travel expenses and accommodation.
  • The minimum research visit to the Roosevelt Institute for American Studies is one week.
  • Applicants wanting to conduct research for a Master Thesis or PhD must be endorsed by the professor supervising their work.
