Postdoctoral Scholarships

Every year, the Daimler and Benz Foundation awards ten scholarships to exceptional postdoctoral students, assistant professors, and young managers of new research projects. Our goal is to support the autonomy and creativity of our next generation of academics and to help committed researchers as they begin their postdoctoral academic careers. The recipients receive scholarships of €20,000 a year for two years to finance research assistants, technical equipment, research trips and attendance at conferences. By hosting gatherings for the steadily increasing network of scholarship recipients in Ladenburg, the Daimler and Benz Foundation also provides a forum for the exchange of interdisciplinary ideas.


Daimler and Benz Foundation

Openness and curiosity are essential prerequisites for discovery. In order to intensify the knowledge-generation process, the Daimler and Benz Foundation works with targeted stimuli. Using its €3 million yearly operating budget, the Foundation is able to provide sizable resources for international research. Its endowment of €125 million makes the Daimler and Benz Foundation one of the largest, actively-operating foundations in Germany.

The Daimler and Benz Foundation is guided by clear principles. Its core values include supporting young researchers, encouraging interdisciplinary cooperation, and promoting research in a wide-range of fields. The Daimler and Benz Foundation has created a forum where leaders in the natural and social sciences can present and discuss their ideas. This exchange brings unconventional associations and new ideas to light: The result is knowledge with long-term benefits for us all.
