Zukunftskolleg’s AAA Fellowships 2019 (U. Konstanz)

Deadlines: 31 March 2019 and 30 April 2019

Zukunftskolleg’s AAA Fellowships 2019 (U. Konstanz)

The Zukunftskolleg’s AAA Fellowships support early career researcher from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The AAA Fellowships have a duration of up to three (or six) months (to be completed before November 2019) and are offered to researchers related to one of the thirteen departments of the University of Konstanz.

You can use this time to extend your research networks and to get to know the research environment at the University of Konstanz, without losing your ties to your home university. As these fellowships can build a first bridge to the German and European academic system, doctoral students in their last year are encouraged to apply.

As a AAA Fellow, you will have a Zukunftskolleg Fellow as a partner who will help you integrate into your respective department and will support you during your research.

Funding follows DAAD rules and will include a stipend of 1.200€/ month and a contribution to travelling to Konstanz and back. The Zukunftskolleg will not offer employment contracts for AAA fellows. You may negotiate a contribution to health insurance and visa costs with the Central Office after the application was granted by the Executive Committee.


  • Status as associated Fellow at the Zukunftskolleg;
  • The opportunity to present your research work to an interdisciplinary community at the Zukunftskolleg’s weekly Jour Fixe;
  • Interaction with a lively international community of peers and support with contacting other researchers in your area of research;

  • Access to library resources;
  • Access to IT services;

  • Access to soft skill and cultural awareness courses (via Welcome Center, Academic Staff Development and external cooperation partners).

  • You are from an AAA country (from an Asian, an African or a Latin American country).
  • You hold a doctorate or equivalent professional qualification OR are a doctoral student in your last year. Please provide either the certificate or a letter from your supervisor commenting on the progress of your doctoral thesis.

  • Your research project should tie in with one of the disciplines represented at the University of Konstanz.
