PhD candidates in cultural studies whose field of specialization is thematically related to Viennese, Austrian, and Central European traditions and/or the IFK's interest in the promotion of interdisciplinary and comparative cultural studies and the humanities are welcome to apply.
Applicants for Fulbright-IFK grants will also be considered for traditional Fulbright student grants.
Accepted degree levels
German-language proficiency is necessary to fulfill the Fulbright Program's bilateral mandate of promoting mutual understanding, to negotiate the challenges of everyday life, and to fulfill university admission requirements. Advanced proficiency is essential to facilitate participation in the IFK’s array of colloquia and other activities for Junior Fellows; thus, all applicants must submit "Form 7: Language Self-Evaluation" and "Form 8: A Foreign Language Evaluation by a qualified language instructor." Both forms are available on the Embark online application system.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to identify appropriate individuals at the IFK to provide on-site guidance.
Dependent support is not available.
