Marie Curie Fellowships // Deadline: 30 June 2011
The Gerda Henkel Foundation is offering Marie Curie Fellowships in the M4HUMAN (Mobility for experienced researchers in historical humanities including Islamic studies) programme aimed at supporting outstanding scholars.
This funding initiative is co-financed by the European Commission under the EUs Seventh
Framework Programme for Research. One objective of this fixed-term programme is to increase networking between researchers in the historical humanities at the international level, including researchers in religious, cultural and political sciences under the special programme Islam, the modern nation state and transnational movements. Other goals include the promotion of trans-national academic exchange, increasing transnational mobility, facilitating further education and the positive and long-term influencing of the
research environment in both origin and destination countries.
Research scholarships can be requested for a larger-scale research work or in connection with a research project.
