Humboldt-Foundation: Climate Protection Fellowship

Every year the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables prospective leaders in academia and industry to implement a research-based proposal in the field of climate protection and/or adaptation:
International Climate Protection Fellowship for young climate experts from developing countries

The application for this fellowship requires (among others) “a detailed statement by a host in Germany, including a mentoring agreement”. GERICS has often been asked to be such a host. To introduce a reasonable workflow, we ask all applicants who want GERICS as a host to fill in a short form.

  • a recommendation letter either of your professor or the head of the department you are working in

and send everything to GERICS. Deadline for applicants to be a guest at GERICS: November 30th 2021.

You will be notified of approval by GERICS on January 5th latest. The deadline for the draft of your proposal for the GERICS mentor is January 20th 2022. However, despite those closing dates GERICS is happy to receive the application forms as early as possible.
