The FWF ASTRA Awards from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) supports successful, internationally visible researchers from all disciplines, including arts-based research, who have already achieved a certain degree of academic independence to reach the next stage of their academic careers in Austria. ASTRA has the following key objectives:

  • Funding excellent, innovative research, including through the development or establishment of new research fields and/or approaches
  • Attracting and retaining internationally visible researchers to help increase the international attractiveness of Austrian research institutions
  • Supporting outstanding women researchers
  • Career development: Supporting the consolidation of independent researchers’ academic careers and the achievement of the qualifications needed for academic leadership positions, especially senior faculty positions, based on a well-funded research project
  • Establishing long-term career prospects through the integration of researchers and their research fields, creating sustainable added value for both researchers and research institutions

Applicants must have completed their PhD between 2 – 9 years from September 30, 2024. The Award provides up to 1 million EUR for up to 5 years.
