Deadline: March 1, 2017
Applications are being invited for International Climate Protection Fellowships for the year 2017. With the fellowships, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables prospective leaders in academia and industry to implement a research-based proposal in the field of climate protection.
The fellowships target prospective leaders from non-European transition and developing countries. Candidates draw up their own research-based proposal which they then implement in collaboration with a host in Germany.
The global challenge posed by climate change can only be met by cross-border international collaborations. By enabling future decision-makers and multipliers to share knowledge, methods and techniques with specialist colleagues in Germany the programme promotes this objective, particularly by taking account of issues relating to practical applicability in the fellows’ own countries. The programme thus drives the development of long-term contacts and collaborations with colleagues in Germany.
Benefit of the fellowship:
• A monthly fellowship of between €2,150 and €2,650, depending on your qualifications.
• Individual mentoring during your stay in Germany
• Additional financial support for items such as family members accompanying you, travel expenses or a German language course
• A three-week introductory phase, during which you will have the opportunity to make contact with other climate protection fellows and visit companies, research institutions and cultural events in Germany
• Extensive alumni sponsorship, particularly to help you sustain contact with collaborative partners in Germany during your entire professional career
• are a future leader from a non-European transition or developing country
• are active in any of the following areas: scientific, engineering-based, legal, economic, health-related or social aspects of climate change
• are interested in spending a year working with a host of your choice in Germany on a research-based project you have developed yourself in the field of climate protection and climate-related resource conservation
