FELLOWSHIPS

  • Philipp Schwartz Initiative of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation - special deadline for Ukrainian scholars (expired)

    In the 11th call for proposals of the Philipp Schwartz Initiative at the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, universities, universities of technology and universities of applied sciences, non-university research institutions and other scientific institutions in Germany can apply for funding to host researchers at risk. Scholars from non-EU countries exposed to significant and acute individual risks can be nominated (for admission requirements and proof of risk, see the programme documentation). Scholars must be nominated by institutions and cannot apply directly. Successful institutions will receive funds to grant the nominated scholar research stays by way of a research fellowship or employment contracts of up to 24 months. They will also receive a lump sum intended for measures to support Philipp Schwartz fellows in integrating and in re-starting their careers. An extension of up to 12 months can be granted in the framework of a co-financing model.

  • Funding offer for fled researchers from Afghanistan

    The Volkswagen Foundation’s fellowship program allows researchers who are currently or were funded during the last 10 years by the Foundation to integrate refugee scholars into their research context for up to two years. Furthermore, grant recipients of projects currently funded by the Foundation can apply for up to EUR 200,000 – in addition to the grants already made – to integrate refugee scholars and scientists into their research projects for up to three years. Eligible to apply are exiled Afghan researchers from any academic field who had to leave the country recently, possess academic qualifications (e.g. publications) or possess potential to be integrated into the (research-related) job market.
