About the Albert Einstein Scholarship

Awarded by the Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation, the scholarship is aimed at offering outstanding young scientists from Germany and abroad, the opportunity to carry out a research project that is outside of their previous work. 

The aim is to support young universalists who – similar to Albert Einstein – are not only characterized by their extraordinary achievements in a specific scientific field, but also by their interdisciplinary commitment.

The scholarship is linked to a stay in the summer house of Einstein’s summer house in Caputh.

The Einsteinhaus is a place of significance in terms of both science and architecture history, with links to the universities of Potsdam and Berlin.

Key Dates and Order of Program

The deadline for submission of applications is 15th of May, 2021.

Applications will be evaluated according to-

  • the quality, 
  • the originality, and 
  • the feasibility of the project proposals as well as according to the scientific background of the applicant. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scholarship holders will only be able to start their stay in Caputh in 2021. Therefore, the next scholarship cannot be awarded for the coming year as planned, but only for 2022.
