You are cordially invited to an information session on funding opportunities in Germany.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation provides fully funded opportunities for young scholars (within 12 years of attaining a Ph.D.) to visit Germany and carry out research with German scholars for varying lengths of time.

It is ideal for a post-doctoral fellowship experience or that first sabbatical leave for new faculty. The presentation will outline some of the unique funding opportunities and there will be Humboldt scholars in attendance to share their own experiences.

  • 11:00-12:00, February 25, 2016
  • Light refreshments will be provided
