60 Years of the Humboldt Foundation: fundraising campaign for junior researchers

The Humboldt Foundation launched a fundraising campaign as it entered its anniversary year. Donations will be used to introduce young researchers into the Foundation’s network.

For example, the donations will provide funding for them to attend Foundation events or enable Foundation alumni to invite junior researchers to accompany them on research trips to Germany.

Many Humboldtians have already contributed, among them Indian physicist K. Anantha Padmanabhan of the University of Hyderabad who donated 10,000 EUR, the largest gift so far. Donations are still most welcome. Visit our website for information on bank details and how you can stipulate the way you would like your donation to be used.

Humboldtians from all countries are invited to donate, with the exception of the USA where a separate fundraising campaign will be held towards the end of the year: alumni in the United States will receive a request for donations from the American Friends of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the Foundation’s partner in the USA, in due course.
