Weimar Awards

Weimar Awards are granted in the following categories:

Graduate awards

The graduate awards are for scholars who have obtained above-average results in their degree studies and wish to document the conceptual context of their research project, to be realized in Weimar, by means of a dissertation or equivalent scientific work. An assessment approving the research project must be enclosed with the application.

Post-doctoral awards

Young graduates who have already completed their doctoral thesis and published their work in relevant journals can apply for a post-doctoral award.

Residential awards

The residential awards are for graduates, scholars who have completed their doctoral thesis and habilitated scientists whose monthly net income exceeds 1,500 Euro and will also do so during the period for which a Weimar award is requested. With the residential awards, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar grants scholars a more generous book allowance and a variety of concessions during the period of their research in Weimar.

Amounts awarded

Financial assistance is available for a maximum of 6 months:

  • Graduate award holders are granted 1,000 Euro/month
  • Post-doctoral award holders are granted 1,500 Euro/month
  • Residential award holders are granted 500 Euro/month

Award criteria

  • A clearly recognisable relationship between the research plan and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s collections
  • The applicant’s scientific qualifications
  • The significance of the research plan for research community

General surveys and works without direct reference to the sources cannot be supported. The award holders are chosen by a committee comprising staff members at the Klassik Stiftung and members of the Research Council. There are no legal entitlements to Weimar awards.

Accommodation and insurance

Award holders can rent the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s guest rooms and apartments for a reduced fee during their stay in Weimar if available.

Moreover, the following concessions and services are available to all Weimar award holders:

  • Free admission to all of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s institutions
  • Assistance from the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s staff members

According to current tax regulations, Weimar awards are not liable for income tax or pension insurance. The awards must be taken up within twelve months of being granted. Travel expenses cannot usually be subsidized. Foreign award holders and award holders traveling to Weimar from abroad must have health insurance to cover the costs of any treatment which may be necessary for the Federal Republic of Germany. Corresponding proof must be provided before the award is accepted. Holders may not make use of their awards unless they are insured.

Obligations of award holders

Award holders will pursue their studies in the Klassik Stiftung Weimar’s institutions. They will take part in regular colloquia during their stay in Weimar. They declare their willingness to present their current research project to an interested public in general comprehensive terms.

Award holders are required to present a work report as well as to answer some additional questions at the end of their stay in Weimar, and no later than four weeks of the expiration of their award (see Downloads for form). The work report should outline the results of the research carried out in Weimar and mention the used collections. Ideas on how the Weimar awards could be developed further are encouraged.

The award holders are obliged to make appropriate mention of the support provided by the Klassik Stiftung in all publications originating from their stay in Weimar. The following wording must be used: »This study was supported by an award from the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.« A sample of every publication originating from the award holder’s stay in Weimar must be sent to the Klassik Stiftung.

Withdrawal of award

Awards may be withdrawn at any time if the information in the application documents is incorrect or the obligations undertaken are not fulfilled. If an award holder does not present his work report within the given deadline, the Klassik Stiftung will demand reimbursement of part of the award. Awards may be adjusted at short notice in the event of changes in the award holder’s personal or financial circumstances during his/her stay in Weimar.
