The Leopoldina Fellowship Programme’s Returning Fellow Scholarship gives former Leopoldina scholarship recipients the chance to plan their future scientific careers.
The funding gives research fellows the freedom to plan projects, make applications, apply for funds and look for jobs during the transitional phase. It allows returning fellows to benefit from financial and academic support during a period of up to twelve months. The funding is not intended for fellows working towards a habilitation during this period.
The Returning Fellow Scholarship may only be awarded in Germany. The amount corresponds to that received in the Leopoldina Postdoc Scholarship, which depends on age.
A supplementary monthly fixed amount will be paid to returning fellows with children aged 18 and under. This amounts to €400 a month for the first child and €100 a month for any further children.
The returning fellow will also receive additional €103 a month for any travel costs and supplies pertaining to the project.
The scholarship amount and any additional funding are calculated in line with the relevant guidelines of the German Research Foundation. The amount of funding may change if the German Research Foundation or the Federal Foreign Office implement new funding regulations.
