Research Grants of the Library of the John F. Kennedy Institute

The Library of the John F. Kennedy Institute is considered one of the most comprehensive of its kind outside North America. Each year its impressive collection is used by a significant number of academics, journalists and students to further their research on topics related to the United States of America and Canada.

The Grant Program, founded in 1979, provides financial support both to advanced scholars and Ph.D. students who, in the context of their research endeavors, require physical access to the extensive holdings of the library in Berlin-Dahlem. With this program, the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies awards between five and ten grants per semester to scholars with a permanent residence/affiliation outside North America (Canada and the United States).
