The Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law offers a limited number of research grants for foreign scholars. The grants are financed by the Max Planck Society and are intended to support research at the Institute. The maximum length of a grant is 6 months.
Applicants are preferred whose projects are capable of promoting the research interests of the Institute. Among these interests are co-work on Institute projects, joint projects of Institute fellows and visiting scholars, as well as individual projects of visiting scholars, to the extent they fall within the research fields of the Institute. Topical proximity to the ongoing Institutional Projects is an advantage.
Who can apply for an Institute grant?
In principle, no grants will be awarded to persons pursuing a doctorate in Germany.
A complete application must include the following documents:
Please upload the documents in German or English language as pdf files in the online-application. After previous consultation, referees may also send their references by e-mail directly to our fellowship application management. Please note that we will not accept applications submitted by e-mail.
In your own interest, we recommend that you apply early since submission of additional or missing documents will be accepted within the application period only. To guarantee equal opportunities, documents presented later or sent by e-mail cannot be taken into consideration.
Applicants will be notified of the Institute’s decision approximately 8-10 weeks after the application deadline.
Please note that with this online-application you can only apply for grants awarded by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law.
Applications for grants awarded by other Max Planck institutes cannot be accepted here!
