Germany sponsors international fellowships

Programme will enable museums to hire young academics and curators from other countries

The Kulturstiftung des Bundes (Federal Cultural Foundation) is sponsoring a fellowship programme for German museums and public collections, enabling them to employ qualified young academics, curators and museologists with professional experience from all over the world for a period of 18 months. The programme is sponsored with €2.58m of federal funding for 2011 to 2016.

So far 20 fellowships in German museums are planned, each one to be directly overseen by a mentor.

Application forms to German museums including their preferences will go out around mid-October. Assessed by an independent jury of four, invitations are expected to be sent out to international museums and staff starting from January 2012.
