In cooperation with the European Commission the Gerda Henkel Foundation launches a new fellowship programme. The funding initiative M4HUMAN (Mobility for experienced researchers in historical humanities including Islamic studies) gives outstanding researchers the opportunity to spend a longer period of time at a foreign research institution of their choice. The call for proposals is open to researchers from all over the world. Main areas of research are the disciplines promoted by the Gerda Henkel Foundation – History, Prehistory and Early History, Archaeology, Art History, Historic Islamic Studies, Legal History as well as the special programme “Islam, the modern nation state and transnational movements”. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2011.


Mobility for experienced researchers in historical humanities including Islamic Studies

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. Starting in 2011, the Gerda Henkel Foundation is offering Marie Curie Fellowships in the M4HUMAN programme aimed at supporting outstanding scholars.
