The Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard-Foundation Stipends support female students and postdoctoral researchers with children who are working in experimental natural sciences or medicine in Germany. The fellowship reduces the amount of time the Awardees would have to spend on childcare and household activities, in order to spend more time on research. Applicants may be of any citizenship and must be students or postdocs at a university or research institute in Germany. Postdoctoral applicants who have obtained their PhD in Germany may use the stipend to further support their postdoctoral training abroad. The stipend provides 500 EUR/month for 1 year and may be extended. Applications open on September 1 and close on November 30 each year.
The next applications close on November 30, 2023
