Application Process

  • Initial application: The first round of application focuses strongly on the alignment of your research plans with the Jacobs Foundation’s goals. In addition, they want to know if you personally would be a strong member of the network.
  • Extended proposal: The second round focuses more strongly on details of your planned research for the fellowship period. They want to know more about your ideas for your work as well as how you would engage with the Foundation and the network.
  • Interview: During the interview, they want to find out if there is a mutual fit between you and the Foundation and clarify open questions that they have based on your written application. It is more a conversation than a scientific interview.
  • Review: All three steps are conducted by a team consisting of internal (Jacobs Foundation) and external reviewers in a multiplicity of disciplines. Applicants who make it to the second or third step will be given a feedback on their application.
