The New University Endowment Freiburg and the University of Freiburg are committed to supporting female researchers who have successfully completed their doctorate and want to pursue an academic career. The bridging scholarships “STAY! / Come and STAY!” are intended to unburden suitable junior researchers for the time needed to write a habilitation exposé or research exposé or an application for leadership of a research unit (six months) and enable them to subsequently apply for suitable follow-up financing in academia, such as a project staff position, a researcher’s or habilitation scholarship, etc. (another six months).
The funding period is twelve months. The monthly scholarship payment is 1,800 euros. If the applicant is eligible for child benefit or a child tax credit in Germany, the scholarship pays an additional 300 euros per child per month, upon application.
The bridging scholarship “STAY! / Come and STAY!” is aimed at outstanding female junior researchers who have a qualifying doctorate. The minimum requirement for application is a doctoral thesis which has been submitted. If the applicant has already completed her doctorate, completion should not usually have been more than twelve months prior to application.
The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
