International research awards for renowned academics from Germany

Are you an academic working abroad? Would you like to nominate a researcher from Germany for an international research award? Then you may do so through the corresponding programmes of our partner organisations in your country.


Procedures and selection

The partner organisations of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation manage the nomination process, carry out the selection procedure and determine award winners independently and according to their own regulations. In general, the award amount is accompanied by an invitation to conduct a research stay in your country of up to one year.
