The scholarship of the Kolleg Friedrich Nietzsche helps finance the academic, journalistic or artistic pursuits of selected fellows. Scholarship recipients are chosen not on the basis of academic qualification, but on the originality and seminal character of their projects for future research beyond the limiting constraints of the academic sector.
The Kolleg Friedrich Nietzsche at the Villa Silberblick serves as a productive forum for discourse on contemporary and future-oriented problems facing the individual and society. In line with Nietzsche’s philosophy, it fosters a multifaceted and cosmopolitan perspective.
Philosophers, humanities scholars of all disciplines, theologians, natural scientists and artists are cordially invited to apply to the fellowship programme. This invitation also extends to those who are intellectually involved in non-university activities. The prerequisite for consideration is a university degree (bachelor’s, master’s or PhD).
The fellowship provides funding totalling 1,000 euros per month.
The duration of funding ranges from one to four months depending on the project’s scope.
