Kade-Heideking Fellowships

Funded by the Annette Kade Charitable Trust, the Kade-Heideking Fellowship is awarded annually to a German doctoral student working in one of the three areas to which the late Jürgen Heideking made significant contributions: American history and German-American relations from the early modern period to the present; international history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the history of international relations and the comparative history of colonial systems and societies; and twentieth-century German history, with emphasis on America’s influence on German society between 1918 and 1949. While this fellowship is residential in nature, the fellowship recipient is expected to divide his or her time equally between the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C.
