Mercator Fellowship Programme

Fellowship programme for researchers and practitioners

Mercator Fellows are exceptionally talented and outstanding researchers and practitioners who work on specific questions relevant to the themes and fields of activity of Stiftung Mercator. The Mercator Fellowship programme offers them the space and freedom to also devote themselves to exploratory and unconventional research and practical projects.

Why?

To generate impetus for overcoming key social challenges

We created the Mercator Fellowship programme in 2013 with a view to further expanding the successful collaboration with fellows that has been underway since 2008. Thanks to their expert knowledge and extensive practical experience, Mercator Fellows serve as an important source of inspiration and impetus in our thematic fields, helping to develop ideas that will allow key social challenges to be overcome. We involve them in our work on a long-term basis so that they can contribute their expertise and stances to our networks through lectures and discussions.

What?

Promoting research or practical projects, sharing knowledge

The programme fosters talented researchers and practitioners with projects that are linked to the foundation’s themes. It is open to applicants of all nationalities and from all disciplines. The Fellowship is tied to a research or practical project that the fellows develop themselves. As a rule, fellows pursue their projects within a period of three to nine months, either on an independent basis or at an established host institution in Germany or abroad. The Fellowship includes basic funding to cover living and material expenses, as well as additional lump sums to cover travel, publication and event costs. A Mercator Fellowship is not intended to support students at bachelor’s or master’s level. It is also not a PhD or postdoctoral scholarship, nor graduate funding intended to follow on from other third-party support. Relevant experience and qualifications in the proposed Fellowship project field are a prerequisite.

How?

Work stays at established institutions in Germany and abroad

Each year, the foundation chooses up to six Mercator Fellows in a two-stage selection process: candidates are normally proposed by the Stiftung Mercator Executive Board and invited to submit an application. Candidates who are interested in applying initially contact the head of the Stiftung Mercator department that is relevant to their topic and present their project. The applicants identified during this pre-screening stage then submit their applications for the formal selection process. Applications must include a CV with a list of publications and work samples as applicable, as well as an outline description of the project (covering two to three pages) in German or English. A personal interview is not necessary during the selection process. Successful candidates are picked by a jury made up of experts in the relevant thematic fields. The main factors in this decision will be the academic and professional qualifications of the applicants, and the relevance of their project to the strategic objectives of Stiftung Mercator.

In addition, Stiftung Mercator awards Fellowships via joint calls issued with its partner organizations. In such cases candidates apply directly to the partner organization in question.
