Scholarship at Humboldt Foundation
Applicants are highly qualified scientists and scholars from abroad just embarking on their academic careers who completed their doctorates less than four years ago. The fellowship gives international candidates from all disciplines the opportunity to realise a long-term research project (six to 24 months) of their own design in cooperation with an academic host of their choice at a research institution in Germany. Every year about 500 Humboldt Research Fellowships for Post-doctoral Researchers are awarded. The fellows receive the amount of EUR 2,650 per month in addition to a number of further benefits.
