STAY! Bridging Scholarship / Come and STAY!

The New University Endowment Freiburg and the University of Freiburg are committed to supporting female researchers who have successfully completed their doctorate and want to pursue an academic career. The "STAY!/Come and STAY!" bridging scholarships are intended to unburden suitable junior researchers for the time needed to write a habilitation exposé or research exposé or an application for leadership of a research unit (six months) and enable them to subsequently apply for suitable follow-up financing in academia, such as a project staff position, a researcher's or habilitation scholarship, etc. (another six months).

The funding period is twelve months. The monthly scholarship payment is 1,800 euros. If the applicant is eligible for child benefit or a child tax credit in Germany, the scholarship pays an additional 300 euros per child per month, upon application.
