The University of Bonn is taking applications for the Argelander Scholarships for Doctoral students from developing nations in Germany for the 2021/22 school session.
The objective of the Argelander Scholarships is to offer funding for doctoral students from nations in the Global South. This is to promote scientific exchange with partners, especially in regions that have been comparatively marginalized as regards scientific production. So as to promote global cooperation in the priority regions specified in the partnership strategy, the school is particularly calling on doctoral applicants from Africa, South America and Asia to take part. The funding is for a period of a minimum of 3 months and not more than 12 months.
This funding line is aimed to strengthen collaborations between scientists in Bonn and their associates in the above-stated regions. It also looks to enlarge such partnerships with respect to the advancement of early-career researchers. When the application is handed in, a formal or informal partnership agreement should prior to now exist between the home institute of the doctoral applicant and the host institute in Bonn. The host researchers in Bonn function as applicants.
