Albert Einstein Scholarship 2022 for Outstanding Young Scientists

Applications are open for the Albert Einstein Scholarship 2022. With the scholarship, the Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation want to offer outstanding young scientists from Germany and abroad the opportunity to carry out a research project that is outside of their previous work.

The aim of the scholarship is to support those young universalists who – like Albert Einstein – are not only characterized by their exceptional achievements in a specific scientific field, but also by their interdisciplinary commitment.

The scholarship is linked to a stay in the summer house of Einstein’s summer house in Caputh, which lasts between five and six months. The Einsteinhaus is a place of significance in terms of both science and architecture history, with connections to the universities of Potsdam and Berlin.
