The Herzog August Bibliothek is an independent research centre funded by the State of Lower Saxony. The scope of the library’s holdings constitutes a unique archive of European culture. Manuscripts, incunabula, rare books and special collections such as engravings, maps and 20th-century artists’ books, enable almost unlimited studies of cultures of knowledge in a global perspective. The library conducts its own research projects in the fields of medieval and early modern studies. Among the topics which currently form the focus of the library’s own research programmes are cultural translation, material culture and the history of collections and collecting.

Thanks to the initiatives by private foundations (Dr. Günther Findel-Stiftung/Rolf und Ursula Schneider-Stiftung) fellowships programmes for doctoral candidates have been established at the Herzog August Bibliothek. These programmes are open to applicants from Germany and abroad and from all disciplines.

Applicants may apply for a fellowship of between 2 and 10 months, if research on their dissertation topic necessitates the use of the Wolfenbüttel holdings. Fellowship holders are housed in library accommodation for the duration of the fellowship and pay the rent from their fellowship.
