Programme Description

With its fellowship programme, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar supports outstanding scientific, essayistic and art projects within 3 funding lines. As residency scholarships, they offer a sojourn of several months in Weimar, a city rich in cultural heritage.

Target Group

  • Weimar-Fellowships: Support for graduates, post-doctoral researchers and habilitated scientists who wish to use the Weimar collections for their research work. Fellows can work in all institutions maintained by the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, with preference given to the Goethe and Schiller Archive, the Duchess Anna Amalia Library and the museums in order to use the broad inventory of historic books, manuscripts and other documents.
  • Nietzsche-Fellowships: The fellowship enables a 2-month stay for "free spirits" in Weimar and aims to promote a philosophical, a scientific or an essayistic project. A reference to Nietzsche’s philosophy is expedient, though not obligatory.
  • Bauhaus-Fellowships: Grant for artists and culture workers whose projects have a closer or wider reference to Weimar and/or current matters. The project should become visible within the public realm, for example in form of an exhibition, an event or an intervention.
