The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation offers fellowship forhighly-qualified scientists and scholars from Germany who completed their doctorates less than twelve years ago1 to spend extended periods of research abroad.

Candidates are expected to have their own, clearly defined academic profile. This means they should usually be working at least at the level of a Junior Professor or Junior Research Group Leader or Habilitand or be able to document independent research work over a number of years. Scientists and scholars from all disciplines may apply for any target country abroad.
The academic host must be an academic working abroad who has already been sponsored by the Humboldt Foundation. Candidates choose their own research projects and their host abroad and prepare their own research plan. Details of the research project and the time schedule must be agreed upon with the prospective host in advance. The duration of the research fellowship (6-18 months) may be divided up into a maximum of three visits lasting a minimum of three months each. As a rule, no more than 36 months may elapse between the beginning of the first stay and the end of the last stay. Short-term visits for study and training purposes or for attending conferences are not eligible for sponsorship.
The Humboldt Foundation expects the host to contribute to financing the research fellowship. Over the duration of the fellowship, the host’s contribution should account for approximately a third of the total fellowship amount. However, host institutes in developing and threshold countries and in other selected countries (c.f. list of countries) are not required to make a financial contribution. If a host institute in another country experiences obvious difficulties in raising its contribution, the Humboldt Foundation may accommodate this particular case.
