International Climate Protection Fellowship (Alexander von Humboldt Foundation)

Next deadline: 1 March 2021

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.

The fellowship facilitates the mutual exchange of knowledge, methods and techniques with hosts in Germany; this also extends to questions of practical applicability in your country of origin. They offer you:

  • a monthly fellowship of €2,170, €2,470 or €2,670 in the programme line for prospective leaders – depending on your training and career level; a monthly fellowship of €2,670 in the programme line for postdoctoral researchers
  • individual support during your stay in Germany
  • additional financial support for example for accompanying family members, for travel expenses or for a German language course
  • a three-week introductory event where you can connect with other climate protection fellows, visit businesses and research institutions, and attend cultural events in Germany
  • extensive alumni sponsorship, in particular to support long-term connections with your cooperation partners in Germany over the duration of your entire professional career

As future decision-makers and multipliers, you aim to take on the global challenge of climate change through international, cross-border cooperation. Apply for an International Climate Protection Fellowship if you:

  • explore questions in the natural or engineering sciences or address legal, economic, health-related or societal aspects of climate change
  • are a citizen of a non-European developing or transition country (see list of countries, PDF; Colombia is included) and have been predominantly living and working there
  • completed your first academic degree (Bachelor or comparable degree) no more than 12 years ago (cut-off date: 1 March of year of application)
  • have initial experience in a leadership role and corresponding leadership skills
  • are a prospective leader with extensive professional experience (at least 48 months at the time of applying)
  • are a postdoctoral researcher with a successfully completed doctorate in climate protection or climate-related resource conservation and have been published in academic journals and by academic publishers peer reviewed to international standards
  • have very good knowledge of English and/or German

Next deadline: 1 March 2021
