Research Support and Scholarships

The Equal Opportunities Office advises and informs female junior researchers about research support programmes of Heidelberg University, the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Wuerttemberg and other institutions for the promotion of science, which are aimed at female researchers particularly. A programme for female researchers, for instance, helps women with children to resume or continue their qualifications. Other programmes are aimed at outstanding female researchers who wish to pursue an academic career. If you have not found a suitable programme, you can look up further support options here.
