Whether you are a young post-doc at the beginning of your scientific career or an established, experienced scientist or among the best in the world in your discipline - the research fellowships and research awards of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation provide for adequate funding.

Every Humboldtian needs a scientific host. Internationalize your research team and encourage your young international cooperation partners to apply for a research fellowship of the Humboldt Foundation or nominate your preffered partner in cutting-edge research for a Humbolt research award. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation supports persons, no projects!


There are no quotas, neither for certain countries nor for certain academic disciplines. 700 fellowships per year, 28,000 Humboldtians, in 140 countries, 54 Nobel Prize winners.


These questions and many more will be answered at the event

  • How do I finance my post-doctoral studies abroad?
  • How do I invite excellent post-doctoral colleagues from abroad to my institute / group?
  • How do I nominate a colleague for an award?
