Applications for financing of a research scholarship may be submitted to the Gerda Henkel Foundation's head office at any time.
The Foundation committees meet twice a year to consider the applications and decide on funding grants. The application deadline for the Foundation committees spring meeting in 2019 is 22 November, 2018. Applications have to be in the Foundation's office by this day. The Foundation committees are holding their meeting in April 2019. If your application is successful, funding can start at the beginning of May 2019 at the very earliest.
The deadline is not valid for smaller funding amounts (max. 15,000 euros). Smaller funding amounts are granted by the Foundation through a simplified procedure with a deliberation time of approximately three to four months. Please follow the exact same application procedure for smaller funding amounts as for regular research scholarships.
