Humboldt Research Fellowship 2022

The Humboldt Research Fellowship for researchers of all nationalities and research areas: it supports you – postdoctoral and experienced researchers – with your research in Germany.

Through the Humboldt Research Fellowship, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation sponsors researchers with above-average qualifications from across the globe. As a fellow, you will benefit from individual support from the Humboldt Foundation and our diverse sponsorship portfolio.

Why apply?

The Humboldt Research Fellowship enables you to conduct your own research at various stages of your career in collaboration with a host at a German research institution of your choice. Hosts may apply for a subsidy towards research costs.

  • Postdocs, benefit from research sponsorship in Germany at the beginning of your academic career. The monthly fellowship amount is €2,670. Fellowships may last from 6 to 24 months.
  • Experienced researchers, you can still apply for research sponsorship in Germany even if you are already well advanced in your academic career. The fellowship amount is €3,170. Fellowships may last from 6 to 18 months and can be divided into up to three stays within three years.

In addition to the fellowship amount, you will also receive personal support throughout your sponsorship. You are flexible in determining when you would like to start your fellowship. Prior to your research fellowship, you and your marital partner will be able to attend an intensive language course.

Further financial support, including family benefits for children and marital partners, subsidies for private full health insurance and allowances for travel expenses, is also available.
