Humboldt Research Award

Information for independent peer reviewers

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation sponsors people, not projects. Consequently, the nominee’s own scientific qualifications should be the focus of your review.

The Humboldt Research Award is granted to academics, whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and beyond and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge academic achievements in future. In addition to the documents provided by the nominator, the Humboldt Foundation’s selection committee requires your independent peer review.

As a peer reviewer you will be given access to our peer reviewer portal on which you will find the documents to be reviewed as well as a personal form for completing your review.

Your review will, of course, be treated with the utmost confidentiality and only made available to people who are involved in the rest of the selection procedure. Please ensure that the same level of confidentiality is maintained both towards those directly involved and towards third parties.
