Ambassador Scientists

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s Ambassador Scientists disseminate information about Germany as a research location at universities and research institutions at home and abroad, focussing particularly on the Foundation’s sponsorship programmes and international network. They work for the Foundation in an honorary capacity as alumni, hosts or reviewers.

Abroad the Ambassador Scientists also advise the Humboldt Foundation and other German funding organisations on local programme promotion and networking. They are points of contact for Humboldt alumni and Humboldt associations. Currently 45 Ambassador Scientists in 33 countries are supporting the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
