The IPN launches a fellowship program for scientists who have fled Ukraine.

May 11th, 2022

Due to the ongoing Russian attacks on Ukraine, many people have already had to leave the country. These include scientists, whom the IPN - Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education is now supporting with a fellowship program.

Applications are invited from refugee Ukrainian researchers in the fields of science or mathematics education, psychology or education sciences who are now living in the Kiel or Berlin area. Requirements for application are a Master's degree or higher in the above-mentioned or closely related fields, as well as work within the past year at a university or other academic institution in Ukraine conducting research in the above-mentioned fields.

The IPN's special fellowships, which cover living expenses for three to six months in Kiel or Berlin, respectively, aim to give refugees the chance to continue their research in a supportive environment and to establish new collaborations at the IPN, Kiel University, and/or Humboldt University in Berlin.

Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2022.  The applications undergo continuous review to ensure a prompt decision on funding once the application has been received.
