Apply now: Anna Boyksen Fellowship
TUM-IAS awards Anna Boyksen Fellowships to distinguished researchers and gives them the necessary time and financial support to explore gender- and diversity-relevant themes in the context of the natural and engineering sciences. The Fellowship is named after Anna Boyksen, the first female engineering student at TUM in 1906.
Up to 2 Anna Boyksen Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding international scientists who intend to explore gender- and diversity-relevant topics with regard to the natural and engineering sciences together with a TUM research group. Applications are invited from all areas of the TUM research portfolio.
Objective & Funding
The Fellowships last two years, during which Fellows are expected to spend a total of three to six months at TUM. In this way, TUM-IAS intends to further a lasting and productive connection on an international level.
Anna Boyksen Fellows receive an award of max. €20,000 plus max. €50,000 for travel, housing and research-related costs. For Fellows with family responsibilities, the TUM-IAS offers flexible funding, additional administrative support, and various other kinds of provisions.
