The Arnold Heidsieck Scholarship Fund invites applications from BA-students in the humanities who are currently enrolled at a German university and have a focus on German culture, language, history, music, or art in their studies.
After the seventh call for applications in 2021, eight scholarships for one or two semesters at universities in the US had been awarded to aid with travel and living costs abroad. Deadline for applications was 31 May 2021 for a study stay in the course of the academic year 2021/2022.
Arnold Heidsieck (1937-2009), philosopher and German philologist, taught as a professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Born in Leipzig and raised in Breslau, Heidsieck studied theology in Tübingen and wrote his doctoral dissertation in literary studies at the Freie Universität Berlin. His research initially centred on Kafka and his intellectual contemporaries; his later work focused on German post-war literature and representations of the Holocaust.
