The Faculty of Humanities of the University of Göttingen has set up a fellowship fund of 45,000 euros for threatened scholars and PhD students. The faculty is now offering short-term scholarships for a period between four weeks and three months as well as fellowships for a period of twelve months as bridging grants.

    Support for persecuted scholars
    Faculty of Humanities awards fellowships and short-term scholarships

    (pug) Around the world, scholars are persecuted because of their research and ideas, threatened and restricted in their work. The Faculty of Humanities of the University of Göttingen has set up a fellowship fund of 45,000 euros for threatened scholars and PhD students. The faculty is now offering short-term scholarships for a period between four weeks and three months as well as fellowships for a period of twelve months as bridging grants.

    Researchers applying for such a scholarship need to provide confirmation of the pertinent threat either in the context of an asylum-granting procedure or by way of a credible threat assessment from a third party, such as the Scholars at Risk network, the Scholar Rescue Fund or the Council for At-Risk Academics. Deadline for the first round of scholarships is December 31, 2017.
