Description

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from abroad and from Germany. Our research fellowships and research awards allow you to come to Germany to work on a research project you have chosen yourself together with a host and collaborative partner. As an intermediary organization for German foreign cultural and educational policy we promote international cultural dialogue and academic exchange. If you would like to become a member of the Humboldt Family, only one thing counts: your own excellent performance. There are no quotas, neither for individual countries, nor for particular academic disciplines. Our selection committees comprise academics from all fields of specialization and they make independent decisions based solely on the applicant’s academic record. We support people, not projects. After all, even in times of increasing teamwork, it is the individual’s ability and dedication that are decisive for academic success.

During their stay in Germany, the German Chancellor Fellows pursue research-based, self-developed projects at host institutions. They are supervised by hosts in Germany whom they select themselves and who have the necessary level of expertise to mentor the respective research topics. The projects should not only be of social significance, but should also have a long-term, publicly-visible impact. They should also be conducive to advancing fellows’ career development. While in Germany, fellows will be able to expand their specialist knowledge and gain new international experience whilst enhancing their intercultural skills and thus enabling them to develop into successful leaders. After the fellowship has ended, they act as intermediaries between their own countries and Germany. Alumni continue to be part of the worldwide Humboldt Network in which current and former German Chancellor Fellows have fostered a steadily growing network of international decision-makers, multipliers and thought leaders.
