Add-on Fellowship Program
With the add-on fellowship, the Joachim Herz Foundation supports for young scientists in economics or life sciences. These fellowships are particularly intended to help PhD students and postdocs to pursue interdisciplinary research and to enable them to intensify their professional, international research network.
Who can apply?
Young scientists who work at a German research institution and who meet the following requirements are eligible to apply:
- As a prerequisite a position as graduate student or postdoc in the field of life science or economics with an interdisciplinary research focus is given.
- This research engagement has at least the duration of the fellowship or it is plausible that the applicant will continue her/his academic career within the next two years.
What does the fellowship contain?
The Add-on Fellowship contains up to 12,500 Euros over the course of two years. The funding does not cover living expenses but may be used for the purchase of research equipment, research sojourns and conference visits as well as further professional trainings fostering the own academic career.
Fellows with children can apply for additional funding of up to 3,000 Euro for the reconciliation of work and family life.
Furthermore, fellowship meetings and other events organized by the Joachim Herz Foundation are part of the fellowship.
