€1.65 million, it creates unique opportunities for excellent
researchers to conduct their own research in Germany: award

of their choice and setting up their own research groups –
independently and virtually free of bureaucracy.
Scientists and scholars of all disciplines from abroad who have
completed their doctorates within the last six years are eligible
to apply. The award targets outstanding talent and a creative
approach to research.
The Humboldt Foundation actively promotes equal opportunities and therefore particularly welcomes applications from
