Argelander Grants


Are you a talented postdoctoral researcher who does not already have funding through a third party? The University of Bonn offers three types of Argelander Grants to postdocs who need financial support for project costs, participation in international conferences or in academic online events.

Starter-Kit Grants

These up to two-year grants are designed to help postdoctoral researchers in their transition from doctoral studies to a career in academia, the grants come with € 25,000 for the preparation of third-party funding proposals and also include individual consultation programs.

International Conference Grants

These grants provide funding for fees, travel and accommodation for University of Bonn postdoctoral researchers participating in international conferences, workshops and summer schools.

Participation in Academic Online Events (New Funding Line!)

Through these grants, the University of Bonn supports postdoctoral researchers' participation in academic online events. The aim is to give our postdocs the possibility to further develop their career and expand their scientific network - without travelling physically.
