Fellowship Program
* Applying for an Extension of a Minerva Fellowship

Extensions for Post Docs are principally not possible.

Extensions of doctoral fellowships will only be granted if the continuation of the fellowship is vital for the success of the project.

The following documents for an application for an extension of a doctoral fellowship must be submitted in English and only by email (separate doc, docx or pdf files) to Ms. Sieglinde Reichhardt, sieglinde.reichhardt@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 Ms. Sieglinde Reichhardt via email (see above) or telephone (+49-(0)89-2108-1242).
