Graduate School of the Berlin University of the Arts Fellowships 2023/2024 for International Students

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 and producing or realising their own project.

In addition, the Graduate School offers an opportunity for teaching and 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.

We are therefore especially looking for candidates who are interested in participating in a common thought, exchange, and work process within the group and with other actors at the Berlin University of the Arts.
