Research scholarships for postdocs

Research scholarships are especially recommended for manageable research plans or for young scholars. The response period is often shorter than for project funding applications. Scholarships are typically tax-free, but also do not include any sort of social insurance - you must arrange health and pension insurance yourself and do not have a right to receive unemployment benefit (Arbeitslosengeld I).

We have listed several scholarship donors for you, further ones can be found in databases.
