Share this post

Text on a blue background says "Want to find funding & get support for grant-writing?" Logos of scientifyRESEARCH & GrantDesk appear below on a white background and an orange plus symbol appears between the two logos.

The Change! Fellowships funding program from the Volkswagen Foundation is designed for scientists from all disciplines who have realised the potential of non-academic sources of knowledge for their research on transformation processes. The Volkswagen Foundation is looking for research personalities who partner up with actors from societal practice to develop knowledge, methods, and scenarios for transformation pro-cesses through joint research, initiate such processes in society and anchor transdisciplinary research in science. Funding are available for postdocs and junior professors:

  • Funding for postdoctoral researchers includes personnel costs for the own position and for up to three scientific staff members, other recurring and non-recurring costs, and travel costs. The amount of funding is up to 1.8 million EUR.
  • Junior professors can also apply for personnel costs for up to three scientific staff members, other recurring and non-recurring costs, and travel costs. Costs for their own position are only granted in individual cases (e.g., bridge funding for W1 without tenure track). The amount of funding is up to 1.5 million EUR.

Funding is available for up to 5 years and an additional 10% may be applied to indirect costs.

Applications close on March 28, 2024.
