Impulses for knowledge
The application process for the 2019 postdoctoral scholarships is now closed.
The online application portal for scholarships in the 2020 postdoctoral program will open in mid-year 2019.
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.
