International grants, scholarships and exchange programs

In many cases comparison of experience and cooperation between scholars proves to be helpful in stimulating further development in most fields of research. This goes for the work of experienced university teachers as well as junior scholars.

The Foundation is flexible in applying the financial resources required, can also help include foreign scholars in project cooperation and supports many projects in which German and foreign scholars work together. Targeted support of international exchange between junior scholars also promotes international cooperation in the same manner, helping preserve or intensify close ties between experts.
