Promote the Humboldt Foundation

The best ambassadors for the Humboldt Foundation are those who have participated in its programmes. Humboldtians such as you can help the Humboldt Foundation achieve its goals by raising awareness about Humboldt Programmes among qualified candidates in your area.

Ways to share information

There are many ways to share information about the foundation's sponsorship opportunities. They vary from country to country, field to field, and institute to institute. Those who have been sponsored by the foundation are familiar with the circumstances of their respective region and discipline. They can best judge which methods would be most effective for sharing information. The following are some possible scenarios:

  • Informal Conversations
    Speak to students or colleagues in your home country and make them aware of the opportunities offered by the Humboldt Foundation.
  • Academic Conferences
    When you attend an academic conference, mention the Humboldt Foundation to your colleagues there. Display informational materials or posters from the Humboldt Foundation. Mention your own Humboldt experience at the conclusion of your lecture at the conference. Or offer to give a presentation on the foundation's programmes (Download at the top of this page).
  • Visits to Universities or Other Research Institutions
    When you visit other universities or research institutions, mention the Humboldt Foundation in various contexts (see "academic conferences" above).
  • Your Own Institution
    Hang the Humboldt Foundation's poster in your office or institution, display informational materials, or give a presentation about the sponsorship opportunities.
  • Your Website
    Make a link on your institution's or university's web site to the home page of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Also, make a link from your personal homepage.
