The Graduate School of the Berlin University of the Arts is a postgraduate and international programme of studies for highly qualified graduates in all disciplines who have already developed their own artistic or design positions. Interested persons are asked to submit an artistic or design project or research project that can be completed within two years.

The fellowship programme is aimed at graduates in all artistic and scientific disciplines who understand exchange with other disciplines as being an essential part of their work. The fellowship gives recipients the possibility to work intensively for two years on researching and producing or realising their own project. In addition, the Graduate School offers an opportunity for teaching and project integration within the framework of interdisciplinary collaborations between arts and sciences at the Berlin University of the Arts, as well as for individual supervision by professors from the areas of Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Music, and Architecture, Media and Design. The Graduate School sees itself as an academic forum for exchange, which supports fellows on a professional level in developing their work further, both in practice and in conceptual and discursive terms. Regular working group sessions and public events (for example, the “Salon für Ästhetische Experimente” series at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt or the concluding “Graduale” exhibition) give a form to the work process that, on the one hand, intensifies the work internally, while on the other serving to share it with the Berlin public. We are therefore especially looking for candidates who are interested in participating in a common thought, exchange, and work process within the group and with other actors at the Berlin University of the Arts.

The fellowship comes with the title “Fellow of the Graduate School at the Berlin University of the Arts.” Support is provided for two years. The monthly stipend is 1,365 EUR plus a grant for the cost of materials and a child allowance, when relevant. Prospective starting date: April 1, 2019.

The Graduate School will award at least four fellowships. The awarding of the fellowships is subject to the approval of the financial resources.

The Berlin University of the Arts is committed to increasing its share of young female artists and scholars and therefore expressly encourages women to apply.

The application process takes place in three stages. The deadline for the first stage is May 2, 2018 (24:00 CET).
