Alumni

A Fellow’s departure from the Wissenschaftskolleg does not perforce mean the end of a scholar’s relationship with the institute. There are still many avenues for maintaining contact. The Kolleg’s staff remains accessible to you even after official expiration of your stay.


Current Address

Please remember to inform us of any changes to your address so that we may remain in contact with you after expiration of your stay at the Wissenschaftskolleg.


Fellows' Club

If you should like to maintain a close relationship to the Wissenschaftskolleg after your departure from the institute then you can become a member of the Fellows’ Club. It is through your annual dues – and any other contributions you choose to make – that you assist the Wissenschaftskolleg in maintaining and expanding its broad spectrum of activities. You can visit the Fellows’ Club on Facebook.


Fellow Forum

The Wissenschaftskolleg offers former Fellows the opportunity of applying for the funding of workshops. These workshops are regarded as laboratories that continue discussions from previous academic years while introducing new questions and fields of scholarship. The selection meetings of the Academic Advisory Board take place in May and November of each year.

Newsletter

All former Fellows regularly receive a newsletter informing them of recent happenings at the Wissenschaftskolleg. We also send you a bulletin of upcoming events as well as issues from our series “Köpfe und Ideen” and our “Yearbook”, both of which can be received in printed form if desired.


Future Fellows

The Wissenschaftskolleg counts on the assistance of its former Fellows in locating suitable scholars for future academic years. It is thanks to their personal experience that former Fellows are particularly well placed to judge the qualifications of candidates. We are especially grateful when made aware of researchers who can add to the diversity of our community (in terms of scholarly discipline, national origin gender, age, cultural background . . .).


Visits to Berlin

The guest rooms of the Wissenschaftskolleg are made available to former Fellows, at their own expense, and particularly in the context of scholarly stays in Berlin. Please inform us in a timely manner of any plans you might have, since our lodging capacity is limited.

Annual Meeting

Each year in June the Fellows’ Club stages an annual meeting at which all former Fellows are welcome. Former and current Fellows come together at the Berliner Abende. Apart from this, we are also very pleased when alumni of the Wissenschaftskolleg manage to congregate in their home countries.


Results

Not all projects that scholars pursue at the Wissenschaftskolleg are concluded here. We at the Wissenschaftskolleg are thus grateful if scholars would inform us of any publications resulting from their stay and if they would also send us a copy of the work.


Fellowfinder

In this database all past and present Fellows of the Wissenschaftskolleg can be found. You have the possibility of locating Fellows in your particular region or scholarly discipline. Upon request we will gladly transmit a certain Fellow’s contact information.
