The Wittenstein Foundation/Einstein Forum Fellowship 2023

The Einstein Forum and the Wittenstein Foundation offer a fellowship for outstanding young thinkers who wish to pursue a project in a different field from that of their previous research. The purpose of the fellowship is to support those who, in addition to producing outstanding work in their area of specialization, are also interested in other, interdisciplinary approaches—following the example set by Albert Einstein.

The Einstein Forum is a foundation of the German federal state of Brandenburg that serves the public as an open laboratory of the mind. Through a varied program of conferences, workshops, podium discussions, and lectures it brings together original thinkers from all over the world to test new ideas—and interrogate conventional ones—with a general audience.

Topics span the arts and humanities, natural and social sciences, ethics and politics. Whatever the subject, speakers are urged to think outside traditional academic boundaries. Our multidisciplinary emphasis encourages dialogue not only among experts from different fields but also, and just as importantly, between specialists and the public at large.

Underlying the Einstein Forum’s programming, along with the books and articles published by our staff, is an abiding belief that thinking has a purpose besides advancing scholarly and scientific knowledge. It must provide orientation, foster curiosity, and inspire creativity. Moreover, like Albert Einstein himself, it must be committed to social responsibility. In espousing these ideals, the Einstein Forum works to restore Potsdam’s traditional role as a center of Enlightenment thought.

Requirements for the The Wittenstein Foundation/Einstein Forum Fellowship

  • Candidates must be under 35 and hold a university degree in the humanities, in the social sciences, or in the natural sciences. 
  • Applications for 2023 should include a CV, a two-page project proposal, and two letters of recommendation. 

At the end of the fellowship period, the fellow will be expected to present his or her project in a public lecture at the Einstein Forum and at the Wittenstein Foundation. The Einstein Fellowship is not intended for applicants who wish to complete an academic study they have already begun.

A successful application must demonstrate the quality, originality, and feasibility of the proposed project, as well as the superior intellectual development of the applicant. It is not relevant whether the applicant has begun working toward, or currently holds, a PhD. The proposed project need not be entirely completed during the time of the fellowship, but can be the beginning of a longer project.


The fellowship includes living accommodations for five to six months in the garden cottage of Einstein`s own summerhouse in Caputh, Brandenburg, only a short distance away from the universities and academic institutions of Potsdam and Berlin.

The fellow will receive a stipend of EUR 10,000 and reimbursement of travel expenses

Application Deadline: May 15, 2022.

The Noel Buxton Trust – Africa grants 

Purposes of funding

Trustees would like to focus their limited funds on economic development rather than service provision.  Trustees  favour work such as small business support and training, and  microfinance in both urban and rural settings.  Applications in support of initiatives that are building sustainable futures in the semi arid areas of Africa are especially welcome. Trustees also welcome appeals that support and protect street children, and help them find safe and sustainable livelihoods.

The Trust would welcome applications that enable successful practical solutions to be replicated or that aim to bring about relevant policy change through effective advocacy. They would also welcome applications that demonstrate a commitment to strengthening community based organisations and ensuring the voice of poor and marginalised women and men are properly heard and respected.

Who can apply?

Trustees tend to offer grants to smaller, grass-roots organisations and do not generally respond to appeals from large and well-supported charities. The Trustees welcome applications from diaspora led organisations based and registered in the UK . 

The Trust is willing to consider direct applications from registered civil society organisations in Africa or UK based charities which might be diaspora organisations based in the UK .  Applications need to be made in English.

Geographical focus

The Trustees fund work in Africa. At present they favour projects based in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, Sudan and South Sudan.  Within these areas, priority will be given to work with communities living in urban slums and semi-arid regions where economic hardship is most extreme.

 Amount and duration of grants

The maximum grant is £5,000 per year for up to three years. 

The criteria used to assess appeals

Trustees expect to see a strong relationship between the applicant organisation and the community that will benefit from the grant.  This is demonstrated when the applicant shows a clear understanding of the economic, environmental and social issues facing the community.  Trustees like to see practical ways in which communities will be strengthened by the work they fund and, especially, how women and girls will be empowered.

Your appeal is more likely to be successful if you are able to briefly describe:

1.     How you identified the need for your proposal

2.     Your track record in doing related work

3.     How you will know that your project has benefitted, or will benefit, the communities with whom you work

4. How you ensure the safety of the people you are supporting while you are working with them

5. You will need to show that you have been operating as a registered organisation for more than three years

6. It is very helpful to let us know about the other organisations that are funding your current work.

7. It is very helpful to let us know your website address as we use online searches to verify your application.


In addition to our list of general exclusions please note that grants are not made for:

  • any work outside the areas listed in ‘Geographical focus’, above
  • buildings
  • expeditions, exchanges, holidays, study tours, visits
  • HIV/AIDS programmes
  • grants are not made to INDIVIDUALS for any purpose
  • organisations set up primarily to treat medical conditions, physical disabilities or mental health issues
  • schools, including school infrastructure and teaching equipment
  • vehicles  


Applications can be made at any time. It can take up to six months to assess an application.  Successful applicants will be informed in writing.  The Trustees’ focus on allocating as much as possible of their limited funds for grant-making and limiting administrative expenses means that applications are not acknowledged and no replies are sent to unsuccessful appeals. The Trust will not discuss applications on the telephone or correspond about rejected appeals.

How to apply for funding

There is no application form. If you wish to make an appeal please send a short letter (1-2 pages) outlining your case for funding. Please mention that you have read this website and  show how your work fits into our guidelines. The appeal should include your charity registration number and the name of the organisation to which cheques should be made payable if different from that at the head of the appeal letter. Please also include :

a)                budget for current and following year

b)                details of funding already received, promised or applied for from other sources

c)        latest annual report / accounts in the shortest available form.

Please send your appeal to:

The Administrator

The Noel Buxton Trust

PO Box 520

Fleet GU51 9GX.

Thank you for reading these guidelines.  If you decide to make an appeal, please note that the Trustees receive many more appeals than they can fund.  This means, regrettably, that they have to turn down some requests, even though the proposed work falls within these guidelines.

Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships (IIF) for Developing Countries

Top-class researchers from Third Countries are welcome to work on projects in Europe. This helps to develop research cooperation between Europe and other parts of the world – to everybody’s benefit. Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships are specially designed to encourage these moves.

Host Institution(s):

Universities, research centres or companies in EU.

Field of study:

All areas of scientific and technological research that are of interest to the EU may be eligible for IIF funding. But there is one exception: research areas covered by the EURATOM Treaty cannot be funded.

Number of Awards:

Not specified

Target group:

Researchers from developing countries

Scholarship value/inclusions:

IIF funding is provided for a research project which will transfer knowledge into your host organisation and building or enhancing collaborations between Europe and the rest of the world. The research project will also allow you to advance your career. Financial support is provided for 12-24 months (full-time equivalent).

Funding allows you to:

•  join a European research team that doesn’t have your experience

•  establish a collaboration through a research project with your lab or your country

•  gain new knowledge in a European lab.

Your IIF may also cover a return phase of up to one year. This will be spent back in your country of origin, applying the experience that you have gained. To qualify for a return phase, you must be from one of the International Cooperation Partner Countries. If you want a return phase, you must include details of it in your initial application. And you must specify the potential return host organization in your country of origin.

Eligibility for the Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships:

• Researchers from Third Countries are eligible for an IIF. That means countries that are neither EU Member States nor Associated Countries.

• Must have either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years’ full-time equivalent research experience, after obtaining a degree permitting you to embark on a doctorate. But that is the minimum. The more experience you have, the better will be your chances of being accepted for this action.

• Your application for an IIF should be made in liaison with the organisation or institution that would be willing to host you in Europe. Host organisations can be universities, research centres or companies.

Note: See the complete eligibility criteria in the work programme which can be downloaded from the call page.

Application instructions:

To prepare and submit a proposal for a Marie Curie IIF, you will need the complete Information package which is available from the call page (see link below). Proposals are submitted electronically via the Commission’s Electronic Proposal Submission Service (EPSS) which is also found on the call page.

It is important to read the the FAQs and visit the official website and the call page (links found below)  for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.
