The Humboldt Alumni Award supports initiatives developed by Humboldtians to deepen academic and cultural ties between Germany and the individual alumnus’ home country and strengthen alumni networks.

The following initiatives were singled out for an award: An initiative developed by Humboldt Research Fellow Evangelia G. Dafni that revolves around the concept of human dignity and human rights in the past and present; a network for sharing expertise and cooperation in the area of art communication which was launched by Humboldt Research Fellow Miriam Ravetto; an initiative conceived by Georg Forster Research Fellow Babita Paudel Bhattarai to foster female researchers in STEM fields in Nepal; a campaign initiated by Georg Forster Research Fellow Egodi Uchendu to cope with waste problems at a Nigerian university; and a network established by German Chancellor Fellow Yan Tang for sharing expertise and knowledge in the area of urban and regional planning.

Brief portraits of the Humboldtians selected to receive a Humboldt Alumni Award which comes with up to €30,000 for establishing networking initiatives are available here. The Humboldt Alumni Award is financed by the Federal Foreign Office.
