Starting today, universities, universities of applied sciences, and other research institutions in Germany can apply for funding from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to support threatened researchers in the 9th call for nominations in the Philipp Schwartz Initiative. Any scholar from non-EU countries can be nominated if they are exposed to significant and acute risks. Scholars must be nominated by institutions and cannot apply directly. Successful institutions will receive funds to grant the nominated scholar research stays of 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.
The deadline for nominations is 5 March 2021.
