Call for Proposals : Marie Curie Fellowships of the Gerda Henkel Foundation, Co-financed by the European Commission under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research

The Gerda Henkel Foundation was founded in June 1976 by Lisa Maskell in memory of her mother Gerda Henkel as a private, non-profit, grant-making organisation dedicated to fostering research in the humanities. The Foundation has its headquarters in Düsseldorf and is active in Germany and abroad.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Starting in 2011, the Gerda Henkel Foundation is offering Marie Curie Fellowships in the M4HUMAN (Mobility for experienced researchers in historical humanities including Islamic studies) programme aimed at supporting outstanding scholars. This funding initiative is co-financed by the European Commission under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research.

One objective of this fixed-term programme is to increase networking between researchers in the historical humanities at the international level, including researchers in religious, cultural and political sciences under the special programme “Islam, the modern nation state and transnational movements”. Other goals include the promotion of trans-national academic exchange, increasing transnational mobility, facilitating further education and the positive and long-term influencing of the research environment in both origin and destination countries. Research scholarships can be requested for a larger-scale research work or in connection with a research project.

SELECTION PROCESS

Following the application phase, all fully completed applications are evaluated by the International Advisory Committee and the Academic Advisory Committee of the Gerda Henkel Foundation. The assessment criteria include the above average qualifications of the applicant and the academic quality of the project. The final decision on all applications is made by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, based on the recommendations of these two bodies.
