The fellowships are in recognition of ACG Vice Chairman Richard M. Hunt, who devoted much of his career as a Harvard University historian to mentoring younger scholars. Dr. Hunt also served as President of the American Council on Germany for 15 years.
The Dr. Richard M. Hunt Fellowship award covers the costs of preapproved international and intercity travel and provides a per diem stipend of $200 for up to 28 days in Germany. Fellows are required to develop research itineraries in consultation with the American Council on Germany, and following the completion of the trip, fellows submit a report summarizing their findings.
Applications are reviewed by a selection committee organized by the American Council on Germany. Applications are evaluated based on: the contribution the project will make to a better understanding of contemporary Germany in historical context; the feasibility of the proposed project; the training of the applicant; and the scholarly potential of the applicant.
