International Climate Protection Fellowship for young climate experts from developing countries 2019/2020

Deadline: 1 March 2019

With the International Climate Protection 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 or climate-related resource conservation during a one-year stay in Germany.

Up to 20 International Climate Protection Fellowships are granted annually, funded under the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety’s (BMUB) International Climate Initiative. The fellowships target prospective leaders from non-European transition and developing countries.

Submit an application, if you:

  • are a future leader from a non-European transition or developing country (see list of countries; Colombia is included)
  • 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

Fellows will receive a monthly fellowship of between €2,150 and €2,650, depending on their qualifications; individual mentoring during their stay in Germany; additional financial support for items such as family members accompanying them, travel expenses or a German language course; a three-week introductory phase, during which they 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 them sustain contact with collaborative partners in Germany during their entire professional career.

Deadline: 1 March 2019
