Research Fellowships

Research Fellowships are intended to help early career researchers to conduct a defined project at a location of their choice in a country other than Germany and to use it as an opportunity to familiarise themselves with new research methods or to bring a large project to a conclusion.


You will be able to apply for a scholarship for a research project abroad in the context of the new Interner LinkWalter Benjamin-Program. 
With the introduction of the program in July 2019, the corresponding information material will be available on our homepage.

New applications in the "Research Fellowships" program can still be submitted until 31.10.2019 in the current form. Renewal applications in the “Research Fellowships” program can continue to be provided in this program.
