Graduate School Berlin University of the Arts: Fellowship Programme (Germany)


The Graduate School of the Berlin University of the Arts is a postgraduate and international programme of studies for highly qualified graduates in all disciplines who have already developed their own artistic positions and who have already carried out an artistic professional practice of at least three years at the time of application. Interested persons are asked to submit an artistic research project that can be completed within two years.

The fellowship programme is aimed at graduates in all artistic and scientific disciplines who understand exchange with other disciplines as being an essential part of their work. The fellowship gives recipients the possibility to work intensively for two years on researching, producing and finalising their own project.

The Graduate School offers opportunities for project integration within the framework of interdisciplinary collaborations between arts and sciences at the Berlin University of the Arts, as well as for individual supervision by professors from the areas of Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Music, and Architecture, Media and Design.

The Graduate School sees itself as an academic forum for exchange, which supports fellows on a professional level in developing their work further, both in practice and in conceptual and discursive terms. Regular working group sessions and public events (for example, the ‘Salon für Ästhetische Experimente’ series at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt or the concluding ‘Graduale’ exhibition) give a form to the work process that, on the one hand, intensifies the work internally, while on the other serves to share it with the Berlin public.

The Graduate School will award four fellowships. The monthly stipend is €1,365 plus a grant for the cost of materials and a child allowance, when relevant. Prospective starting date: 1 April 2021.

Deadline: 25 May 2020
