TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship is given to distinguished students who intend to probe ingenious and high-risk scientific research areas. The fellowship lasts 3 years and the fellows are expected to spend 9 months at TUM.
Hans Fischer Senior Fellows receive an award of €60,000 plus €50,000 for travel, housing and research related costs, such as the organization of workshops etc. A further €50,000 can be allocated to the Fellowship if required (e.g. projects with special experimental needs). This further funding requires an application to the TUM-IAS office and will be granted on the basis of quality, need and availability of funds. Fellows will be given a maximum degree of freedom as to how they utilize these funds (within bounds set by the funding agencies; funds are administered by the TUM-IAS) and their time. The award will be transferred to the Fellow typically in two to three installments.
