Humboldt Alumni Award for Innovative Networking Initiatives
Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to five Humboldt Alumni Awards to promote innovative networking initiatives. For this award, projects shall be recognised which help to create or extend sustainable academic and cultural relations, as well as subject - or topic - related researcher networks, between Germany and the Humboldt alumni’s country of residence, thereby strengthening the alumni networks in the respective countries and regions. These projects build on the foundations of the stays in Germany undertaken by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s fellows and research award winners.
The Humboldt Alumni Award ceremony is expected to take place in Berlin in June 2020 as part of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s annual meeting. Funding for the award is made possible by support from the German Federal Foreign Office.
Humboldt alumni who have already received a Humboldt Alumni Award or special funding through this programme in the past are not eligible to apply.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation very much welcomes applicants’ use of the “Alumniportal Deutschland” for any Internet - based aspects of the initiatives and encourages applicants to integrate the portal into the implementation of their initiatives. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is a partner organisation of this social network, which is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
Application documents should be submitted electronically to the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation by November 30, 2019.
More information on the programme and the application is availbale on the website of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation.
