“Crossing Border” Program: Call for Applications for Research Grants
Deadline: 31 Oct 2018
From the open call:
The “Crossing Borders” program of the Robert Bosch Foundation and the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin funds international research stays of authors, filmmakers and photographers. Applicants from India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam can now apply for research grants.
We are looking for creative people working on relevant themes with a concrete publication proposal and a willingness to engage differentially with the German culture. The aim of the program is to support creative projects, which break existing stereotypes and open a broad perspective on the diversity and multifaceted character of Germany to a larger public.
Research grants can be applied for literary and essay prose works, poetry, photo-textbooks, children and young adult literature, scripts for documentary and feature films, radio programs and multimedia productions. Within the framework of Crossing Borders program applications are welcome from China (including Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao), India, Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam.
The amount of grant will depend on the duration of research and can be up to 9300€. The detailed calculation can be done easily with help of the online application form.
The application deadline is 30 April 2018 and 31 October 2018.
