Excellent Early Career Scientists from Germany

(Effective as of March 31st, 2021)

To support the scientific collaboration between China and Germany and to foster the academic exchange between early career researchers from both countries, the SGC offers funding for Excellent Early Career Scientists from Germany for Research Stays in China.

The SCG offers two versions of this programme: The short-term option funds one research stay of up to two months, while the long-term version allows for up to three such stays spread over a period of three years.

The excellent early career scientists are given the opportunity to conduct their research at a Chinese host institution, thereby gaining insights into the Chinese research system and laying the foundation for a long-term scientific collaboration with their Chinese partners.

1. Eligibility requirements

For applicants from Germany:
