Sylvia Naish Fellowships
Endowed by a generous bequest from the estate of Sylvia Naish, three Fellowships are offered in 2008 for research into any area of German language and literature at the Institute's Germanic Studies Library (; . The awards are designed to assist scholars in the early stages of their careers, to provide a contribution to temporary living expenses in London, or to enable those in employment to take unpaid leave to further their studies.

1. Sylvia Naish Research Fellowship

This fellowship provides funding of up to £2,000. Open to post-doctoral applicants domiciled in one of the German-speaking countries, who wish to spend up to two months at the Institute. Applicants must have a strong publications record and should be under forty years of age at the time of taking up the fellowship. Those holding a lectureship or equivalent position at a university or similar institution of higher education will normally only be considered if they are taking unpaid leave for the duration of the Fellowship. The Fellowship may not be held concurrently with another fellowship or award.

2. Sylvia Naish Post-Doctoral Fellowship

With funding of up to £1,000, this fellowship is open to post-doctoral applicants domiciled in the UK, who wish to spend up to one month researching at the Institute.

3. Sylvia Naish Postgraduate Fellowship
