Successful applicants will receive financial support to cover most expenses related to the two-week institute, including tuition, housing, and most meals; access to library and archival materials and Internet resources; and partial travel support. Preference will be given to advanced graduate students working on dissertation projects related to environmental literature, history, and/or culture in Germany and Europe at a North American or European university.
