Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship 2018 in Germany

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).
