* Applying for an Extension of a Minerva Fellowship

Extensions for Post Docs are principally not possible.

Extensions of doctoral fellowships are an exception and can be granted only under special circumstances.

Please meet, as far as possible, the deadline of January 15 or June 15. The decision regarding your application will then be taken in April (for the January deadline) resp. in October (for the June deadline) during the meetings of the Minerva Fellowship Committee.

The following documents for an application for an extension of a doctoral fellowship must be submitted in English and only by email (as one single PDF) to the Minerva Team: minerva-team@gv.mpg.de.
  • Cover letter from the candidate stating why an extension of the fellowship is absolutely necessary for the success of the project
  • Updated proposal with results achieved so far
  • Summary of the updated proposal: 5-10 keywords, additionally an abstract (up to 200 words), which should by all means be written in laymen's English (for committee members who are not familiar with your field of research), and should contain a generally comprehensible description of the project, also indicating its scientific aims.
  • Updated CV
  • Letter of recommendation from the host justifying the extension

If you have any questions, please contact the Minerva Team via email (see above) or telephone (+49-(0)89-2108-1242).
