News from Sep 06, 2021
In view of the crisis in Afghanistan, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is trying to give universities and research institutions in Germany the opportunity to submit complete applications for Afghan scholars under immediate threat in the current selection round of the Philipp Schwartz Initiative. Against this background, the following exceptions are made as a first step:
1. Special deadline for nominations: Nominations of Afghan scholars at risk may be submitted until 24 September 2021. Please note that the deadline for nominations of other scholars will not change; they must still be submitted by 10 September 2021, as they may not be able to process them otherwise.
2. Special provision on proof of threat: They are working on an appropriate and feasible alternative process to assess risk.
