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!
