Dear <<First Name>>,

You are cordially invited to an information session on funding opportunities in Germany, taking place on May 20, 2020, at 1:30 PM MDT. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation provides fully funded opportunities for young scholars (within 12 years of attaining a Ph.D.) to visit Germany and carry out research with German scholars for varying lengths of time. It is ideal for a post-doctoral fellowship experience or that first sabbatical leave for new faculty. Also the AvH Foundation grants up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards annually to internationally eminent academics from abroad in recognition of their entire academic record to date. 

The webinar program will consist of a 30 minute presentation of the Humboldt Foundation Liaison Office as well as 2 short presentations of the Humboldt fellows Dr. Meghan Riddell, Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Physiology, University of Alberta and Dr. Xiaoting Li, Department of East Asian Studies, University of Alberta about their experience with the AvH foundation fellowship.

The AvH Foundation emphatically campaigns for equal opportunities for men and women in research. The Foundation would like to tap academic potential for its network irrespective of gender. In order to exploit outstanding talent in science and research to the full the Foundation, therefore, explicitly welcomes applications and nominations from highly-qualified female researchers. The Foundation itself continually strives to construct sponsorship programs that are attractive to female academics, and to break down the mobility barriers for women researchers and young families. 

Thus, for example, the AvH fellows are eligible for allowances for marital partners and children under 18 accompanying them to Germany. Time spent on child-rearing or other forms of care can be taken into account in the application process and fellowships can be extended or interrupted if a child is born during the sponsorship period.

We look forward to seeing you!
