Sofja Kovalevskaja Award

Deadline: 09/01/2008
June 15, 2007

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation will grant the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, to young scientists and scholars from abroad with outstanding research records. The aim is to give award winners an opportunity to concentrate on high-level, innovative research work of their own choice in Germany, virtually without administrative constraints, and thus to promote the internationalisation of research in Germany. The award should allow the winners to finance their own working groups at their selected German university and non-university research institutions and to cover their living expenses.

Recipients of the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award will be granted funding totalling up to €1.2 million to conduct research of their own choice during a period of four years commencing immediately after the Award Ceremony.
