The Herzog August Bibliothek is an independent research centre of the State of Lower Saxony and it awards fellowships to post-doctoral researchers in order to promote research in the areas of medieval and early modern cultural history. The international programme is open to all historically oriented disciplines. Projects should be centered on the historic book and manuscript holdings of the WolfenbĂŒttel library. Fellows are required to be be in residence in WolfenbĂŒttel for the duration of their fellowship.
Fellowships are awarded with the proviso that sufficient budgetary means for the stated period of the award are available. There is no legal entitlement to an awarded fellowship. Fellowships can be taken up on the 1st or the 15th of each month. The interruption or postponement of a fellowship is only possible in exceptional circumstances and in agreement with the HAB.   Fellows conduct their research in WolfenbĂŒttel. The fellowship is awarded in the expectation that the fellow sees his or her guest status as an obligation to be in study residence in WolfenbĂŒttel, to participate in the activities of the HAB and in the Fellows' Colloquia. Unavoidable short-term absences are to be agreed with the Fellowship Programme.   The fellowship is granted provisionally and can be revoked if it beacomes clear that statements made in the application are untrue or if the conditions attached to the fellowship are not being met. Notification of changes in the economic status of the fellow after submission of an application must be made and can lead to an adjustment of the sum of fellowship. Fellows are obliged to submit a report at the end of their stay.


A fellowship can only be awarded to a candidate with a doctorate or equivalent scholarly publications.
