Humboldt Research Track Scholarship

Before you start the application process, please carefully read the requirements.



Please note:

If the Master's degree (or equivalent) wasn't obtained within the last six months prior to the date of application, you need to give reasons why you still qualify for a start-up funding!
You need to find a professor from Humboldt-Universität who agrees to write an expert review for you and to act as your mentor during the funding period before you submit your application!
