The Max Weber Foundation, with the support of the Peters Beer Foundation, once a year awards Gerald D. Feldman travel aids to internationally oriented young scholars in the School for the Deutsche Sciences.
Travel allowances should be used to improve the career prospects for mentors and social scientists in the qualification phase. The scientists carry out a self-selected research project in at least two and up to three guest institutes of the Max Weber Foundation and the Richard Koebner Minerva Center for German History. The aid has a total duration of up to three months. The stays (maximum one month per guest, also a shorter stay is possible) are used especially for research in libraries or archives. Transnational or transregional studies are expected to provide new and original impetus to research. The research stays should be completed within 12 months, but not more than 24 months.
The benefits are based on the rates of the German Research Association and include:
• Proven travel expenses for the return journey to the foreign institute (most favorable route);
• Day rates between € 27 and € 58 depending on the destination country;
• Cost-effective accommodation in a guest room of the institute is possible depending on whereabouts and availability.
