Annette Kade Graduate Student Exchange Fellowship Program

In this program, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) partners with French and German institutions to permit an exchange of graduate students. This program allows AMNH graduate students to spend 3 months during the year at selected universities in France and/or Germany and also allows students from French and German universities to come to the AMNH for 3 months. The German and French institution graduate students who come to the AMNH to study will be assisted with identifying potential housing arrangements (such as International House), and each student will pursue a predetermined research project with an AMNH curator. This curator will also facilitate exposure to the other disciplines in the Museum for the Kade Fellow.

The AMNH will ensure that the French and German universities provide similar support and experiences for the U.S. based students. We expect that the students will have the opportunity to explore new cultures and enrich their lives with new contacts and friendships.

For students from French and German institutions coming to the AMNH there are various research opportunities in the five divisions: Anthropology, Invertebrate Zoology, Paleontology, Physical Sciences and Vertebrate Zoology.

Funding, Housing and Duration

All Kade Graduate Student Fellows will be supported with a $2,500/month stipend for housing and food for a 3-month stay. Kade Fellows will be assisted with identifying potential housing arrangements (such as International House). Travel will be provided in the form of roundtrip airfare up to $1000 and supplies will also be paid for not to exceed $1,000 for a total fellowship offer of $9500.
