Scholarship at Humboldt Foundation
Highly-qualified international scientists and scholars from all disciplines who completed their doctorates less than 12 years ago and wish to spend extended periods of research in Germany are invited to apply. Candidates can come from any nation and are expected to have their own, clearly defined research profile: they should typically be working at least at the level of assistant professor or junior research group leader or be able to document independent research work over a number of years. The fellowship amounts to EUR 3,150, offering the candidates the opportunity to carry out their own long-term research projects (six to 18 months) in cooperation with academic hosts of their choice at research institutions in Germany. The sponsorship entails further benefits and may be flexibly divided into a maximum of three visits within a range of three years. Short-term visits for study and training purposes or for attending conferences are not eligible for sponsorship.
