Daimler and Benz Foundation Scholarship Program (1 October 2018)

If you are a postdoc based at a German research institute and are keen to apply for funds of up to €20,000 (for 2 years) to cover costs like consumables, equipment or conference trips, then this might be for you!

The Daimler and Benz Foundation reopened their Scholarship Program and the current call is closing on 1 October 2018. The goal of the program is to strengthen the autonomy of our next generation of academics as well as helping committed researchers get a smooth start on their career path during the productive phase after their dissertation.

The call is open to all areas of study (natural sciences, humanities and social sciences) and all topics. The Scholarship program targets young researchers who have received their PhDs and are in the early phases of their postdoctoral career. The only requirement is that the applicant has a research proposal and a formal connection to a research institute in Germany.
