This foundation gives award winners an opportunity to concentrate on high-level, innovative research work of their own choice in Germany, virtually without administrative constraints, and thus to promote the internationalization of research in Germany. Young scientists and scholars from abroad with outstanding research records, who have completed their doctorates with distinction in the last six years and published work in prestigious international journals or publishing houses are eligible to apply. Recipients of the Award will be granted funding of up to 1.65 million EUR to conduct research of their own choice over a period of five years. Awards allow the winners to finance their own working groups at their selected German university and non-university research institutions and to cover their living expenses.
