Scholarships programs & Awards of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s Climate Protection Fellowship programme promotes prospective leaders from threshold and developing countries who are engaged in climate protection and resource conservation in academia or business, government or non-governmental organisations. Up to fifteen fellows are funded. They will come to Germany for a year to collaborate with a host they have selected themselves on a joint project dedicated to the exchange of knowledge, methods and techniques. The aim is to create a network in which German and foreign experts will work together on a sustainable, international basis to combat climate change and its global consequences. The fellowships are funded under the Federal Environment Ministry's (BMU) International Climate Protection Initiative.
The closing date for applications is 1 December 2012. The fellows will take up their fellowship in September 2013.
Georg Forster-Forschungspreis ist mit 60.000 Euro dotiert.
