In summer term two guest programmes took place at the BGHS. The programme for Start-Up Scholars gave six international young MA graduates the opportunity to expand their ideas for an research project to an exposé. Part of the programme are consultations for developing research questions, academic writing workshops, the presentation of their own topics for an interdisciplinary audience and support in finding a supervisor.

- Yordanos Estifanos (Ethiopia): The Political Economy of Transnational Migration: Ethiopian Irregular Migrants

Beside the Start-Up Scholars, three Research Fellows were guests at the BGHS. Research Fellows already have a doctoral project and can use their time at the BGHS to get in touch with the other scholars and professors in the faculties. The three months are also an opportunity to focus on their projects outside their all-day life.
This year's Fellows and their projects:
- Rodrigo Mota (Brazil): Individualisms and Individuations: Georg Simmel and the Sociology of the Individual
- Anastasia Zaplatina (Russia): Veneral Diseases in the Red Army in 1941-1945: Gender and Epidemiological Aspects
