In support of young scientists and scholars, the Presidential Board of Göttingen University – Foundation under Public Law – offers fellowships for female academics as part of the research-oriented gender equality standards of the German Research Foundation.
Since the winter semester 2009/10 a total of 49 fellowships have been awarded to researchers working on their doctorate / habilitation (post-doctural lecturing qualification). In the call for application for the winter semester 2013/14 nine fellowships will be awarded.
Those eligible to apply are excellent young female scientists and scholars aiming for a senior position in academia/research and seeking to conduct a research project in cooperation with scientists/scholars of the University of Göttingen (including the University Medical School).
The Dorothea Schlözer Fellowships are awarded within the framework of the Dorothea Schlözer Programme, which was set up by the University of Göttingen in April 2009 to promote equal opportunities and personnel diversity on Göttingen campus.
The fellowships will be awarded in accordance with the provisions of the Stipendienrichtlinie (Guidelines on the granting of fellowships/scholarships) by the Presidential Board of the university, upon recommendation by the Dorothea Schlözer Fellowship Award Committee.
There will be a new round of applications for the fellowships in 2016. More details on the applications deadlines will be published here as soon as they are known.
