The GEI’s fellowship programme supports research on textbooks and other educational media. Fellowships aim to provide both young and established academics and textbook authors with the opportunity to use the extensive international textbook collection in its specialist library, conducting comparative studies, exchanging ideas and discussing their findings with the academic staff of the Institute.

Individual fellowships of 1,000 Euros per month (pro rata) are awarded for research of between four and six weeks.

Depending on the availability of funds, assistance with travel expenses (50 percent of expenses; maximum 500 EUR) may be provided.

Potential fellows should stipulate in their application if a need for travel expenses exists.

Established academics and practitioners are also invited to apply for the Otto-Bennemann-Grant (2,000 Euros/month pro rata).

Submission guidelines

Applications are invited from academics, individuals involved in the production of textbooks (design, writing, editing, etc.), employees of educational publishers, and other individuals who influence the development of curricula and textbooks.

Selection committee

A committee consisting of the Institute's director and academic staff meets each October to award fellowships for the coming year.

Under the terms of its fellowship programme, the Institute considers applications submitted by persons of both German and foreign nationality.

Additional information


Fellowship holders are requested to organise their travel so that their arrival at the Institute coincides with the Institute's opening hours, which are Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

During the fellow's stay at the Institute, accommodation can be rented at the Institute's guest house at a monthly rate of 240 Euro. Since there are no staff in charge of the maintenance of the guest house, fellowship holders are requested to keep their rooms as well as the kitchen and the bathrooms clean and tidy.

All accommodation is non-smoking. Fellowship holders are requested to show consideration for other occupants and future guests by refraining from smoking not only in their rooms, but also in the kitchen and bathrooms.
