Hint

The publicly accessible area of the Humboldt Network lists the majority of the Foundation’s 30,000 plus sponsorship recipients worldwide. After logging in, Humboldtians have access to an advanced search, including contact details.

The search for newly selected fellows and award winners lists all the contact details of those who have been granted one of the Humboldt Foundation’s fellowships or awards during the last 24 months. In 2019 a total of 1090 fellowships and awards were granted.

Please note that award details are only published after the award winner has accepted the award. Consequently, this is usually some time after the selection decision has been made.
