Additional support for junior scholars is provided by various foundations at Philipps-Universität Marburg.

Universität Marburg Foundation

The Universität Marburg Foundation promotes research and teaching at Philipps-Universität Marburg. It focuses especially on supporting gifted students in need, contributing to printing costs for dissertations that are evaluated to be at least "very good," and supporting scholarly events and junior scholars who hold a doctoral degree. In the event that funding is approved, up to 25 % of these funds may be used for catering and related services. Recipients are required to comply with Philipps-Universität Marburg's Catering Guidelines.

All members of Philipps-Universität Marburg may apply (except for Department 20). Applications should be submitted to the deans of the departments or the boards of directors of the academic centers. These may then forward one application each to the President of Philipps-Universität Marburg.

Please see the current call for applications for further information on the application process, application requirements, decision procedure, documents to be submitted, and application deadlines.

Wilhelm Hahn and Heirs Foundation

The Wilhelm Hahn and Heirs Foundation provides support for original publications from scholars at the Universities of Marburg and Frankfurt for whom – as set forth in the foundation's constitution – "budgetary and other means are either not or not sufficiently available." Priority is given to funding in the humanities. Funding frequently comprises financial assistance for printing costs (for dissertations), the amount of which is decided by the board of directors. Successful applicants are required to indicate the allowance received from the Wilhelm Hahn and Heirs Foundation by making a corresponding notation in the publication.

In the event that the publication generates revenue, the financial support is to be refunded from the earned revenue. Anthologies and festschriften that are merely a collection of already published writings will not receive funding, nor will study travel, lectures, symposia, and so forth. To date, no habilitation thesis has been funded.

The application must be reviewed by a professor from the field and submitted to the President of Philipps-Universität Marburg, who will then present the application to the Foundation. In addition, a short description of the content of the publication (table of contents, abstract, or a similar description) has to be submitted. If applying for financial assistance for publishing a dissertation, both reviews, or at least that of the primary advisor, should be submitted. Moreover, a list of the publication costs is required, if possible the publisher's cost estimate. It is important to the Foundation that the applicant explains why other financing is not possible.

Please submit the application to

Dez. II A 3
Biegenstraße 10
35037 Marburg

Applications that do not meet the formal requirements will not be submitted to the Foundation.

Prof. Dr. Adolf Schmidtmann Foundation

The Prof. Dr. Adolf Schmidtmann Foundation supports junior scholars from Departments 06 and 20. The foundation's funds are devoted specifically to supporting stays abroad (for a minimum period of three months up to a maximum of two years) for the purpose of conducting research on a specific scientific problem, acquiring special skills, or pursuing research in the field of medicine and human biology. They may also be employed to enable junior scholars to attend a scientific conference by covering the conference fees.

To be eligible for the scholarship, the applicant must have German citizenship, have successfully taken the medical examination or completed university studies, and have proven outstanding academic research ability through exceptional results in previous studies and examinations. Members of the Protestant Church are given preference.
