Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme

Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE speaking to the fellowship group

The Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme is an international fellowship programme for doctoral candidates pursuing research into the history and culture of German-speaking Jewry. Every year, the programme offers up to 12 junior researchers the opportunity to spend a year working on research at the location of their choice. During the course of the year’s programme the fellows get together for two seminars at which they discuss their work with eminent academics.

The programme is named after Rabbi Dr. Leo Baeck (1873-1956), one of the most important personalities in German Jewry in the 20th century. The Studienstiftung runs the programme in cooperation with the Leo Baeck Institute London, financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In the pilot phase from 2006-2009 the Foundation “Remembrance, Responsibility and Future”, the Robert Bosch Foundation, the Alfred Freiherr von Oppenheim Foundation and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation made this programme possible.

The deadline for application is February 1st, 2023.
