Georg Forster Research Fellowship

Support during research stay

The funding for Georg Forster Research Fellowships is provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Since 1.7.2013, the European Union has also supported the programme by approving an additional seven million euros for the period up to 30.6.2018. This funding is used to grant additional fellowships and to finance supplementary benefits during the research stay. Georg Forster Research Fellowships granted in 2014 and 2015 are followed by the appendix “HERMES” and include additional benefits. Unfortunately, Georg Forster Research Fellows, who were selected prior to 2014 or after 2015, are not eligible to receive the benefits financed by the EU.
