Apply for the Dr. Liselotte-Kirchner Scholarship 2021 or the Residence Programme for Junior Academics

Applications for the Dr. Liselotte-Kirchner Scholarship Program 2021 and for the Residency Program for Young Scientists are now open.

For the sixth time, the Francke Foundations are awarding the Dr. Liselotte-Kirchner Scholarship. Applications are possible until 15 October 2020.


In addition to the already established scholarship program, the Francke Foundations will offer a residency program for the first time in 2021 to promote young scientists. The aim is to address young scientists between the bachelor's degree and their first post-doc project, who want to spend a maximum of 3 months doing research in the foundations. They will be provided with free accommodation on the foundation premises for the duration of their stay.
