Argelander Scholarships 2021 for Doctoral Candidates from Developing Countries- University of Bonn

Applications are open for the Argelander Scholarships for doctoral candidates from universities in the Global South.

Research stays in Bonn (3–12 months) for doctoral candidates at universitites preferably in Africa, Latin America, and South (East) Asia.

What is the goal of the funding line?

The aim is to provide funding for doctoral candidates from countries in the Global South in order to promote scientific exchange with partners, particularly in regions that have been relatively marginalized in terms of scientific production. In order to promote international cooperation in the priority regions indicated in the partnership strategy, the University of Bonn is especially calling on doctoral candidates from Africa, South America and Asia to participate. The funding is for a period of at least 3 and not more than 12 months.

This funding line is intended to intensify collaborations between scientists in Bonn and their partners in the above- mentioned regions, and expand such collaborations with respect to the promotion of early-career researchers. When the application is submitted, a formal or informal cooperation agreement should already exist between the home institute of the doctoral candidate and the host institute in Bonn. The host researchers in Bonn act as applicants.
