The American Academy in Berlin was established by Ambassador Richard Holbrooke in 1994 to foster greater understanding and dialogue between Germany and the US.
Independent, nonpartisan, and privately funded, the American Academy in Berlin is committed to sustaining and enhancing the long-term intellectual, cultural, and political ties between the United States and Germany.
Each year, the Academy awards two-dozen semester-long Berlin Prize fellowships to outstanding scholars, writers, and artists from the United States. Fellows, who come from the humanities, social sciences, public policy, and the arts, pursue independent projects in a residential community at the Hans Arnhold Center, a historic villa on Lake Wannsee. They share their work with German colleagues and audiences at lectures, readings, discussions, concerts, and film screenings, which form the core of the Academy’s rich program of public events.
