The University of Bayreuth Centre of International Excellence "Alexander von Humboldt" promotes excellent
research at the University of Bayreuth (UBT) and advances the internationalisation of research and
networking with the best universities worldwide. Effective immediately, the Centre is offering

Short Term Grants for the year 2022
– open to all disciplines* –

Short Term Grants include the reimbursement of travel expenses between the hometown and Bayreuth as
well as accommodation costs in Bayreuth. The costs will be refunded up to a maximum of €3,500. Short Term
Grants are available to researchers regardless of their field of research.

International Excellence – Programme Goals

The Centre supports academic exchange across existing boundaries: between disciplines, between different
cultures and countries, between established and younger researchers. Applicants are encouraged to learn
about the University of Bayreuth's focus areas and research strengths.

Experience Bayreuth – Collaboration with Local Host

We invite the Short Term Grantees to carry out their own research projects in cooperation with a local host at
UBT. Prior to submission of the application, applicants are required to identify a host in Bayreuth with whom
they aim to carry out their research project. The local hosts provide their grantees with appropriate office and
lab space and an up-to-date infrastructure. Applications are welcome from all disciplines.*

Candidate Requirements

We award Short Term Grants to individuals from abroad with challenging and innovative research projects of
top academic quality through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. The all-important
selection criteria are the academic excellence of both the applicant and the cooperative project. For more
information on the application and selection process (required documents, guidelines on eligibility, evaluation
criteria, timeline and stages of the selection process) see our Application Guidelines for Short Term Grants.

Application Deadline

Please submit your complete application via our online form by November 4, 2021.
