Prizes and Scholarships of the Literature Section

The Section awards various prizes and scholarships, including the annual Heinrich Mann Prize, the Berlin Art Prize, and the biennial Alfred Döblin Prize donated by Günter Grass. It is jointly responsible for the selection of up to nine Berlin authors for the scholarship in the Alfred Döblin House in Wewelsfleth, Holstein. The Academy maintains the house and presents the scholarship holders with their work in Berlin. As part of the Young Academy scholarship programme, the Section selects two international scholarship holders every two years.
