Outstanding scientists from outside TUM who intend to explore gender- and diversity-relevant problems with regard to the natural and engineering sciences together with a TUM research group are eligible for a TUM-IAS Anna Boyksen Fellowship. The proposal is to be submitted jointly by the nominee and the planned TUM-IAS host.
The Fellowship is named after Anna Boyksen, the first female engineering student at TUM (1906).
Duration/Stays at TUM:
The Fellowships last two years, during which Fellows are expected to spend a total of three to six months at TUM. In this way, TUM-IAS intends to further a lasting and productive connection on an international level.
Anna Boyksen Fellows receive an award of max. €20,000 plus max. €50,000 for travel, housing and research-related costs (depending on the length of their stay). Fellows will be given a maximum degree of freedom as to how they utilize these funds (within bounds set by funding agencies; the funds are administered by the TUM-IAS) and their time. The award will be transferred to the Fellow typically in two or three installments.
For Fellows with family responsibilities, the TUM-IAS offers flexible funding (for example for childcare/school fees), additional administrative support, and various other kinds of provisions. For more information, please see page 18.
Anna Boyksen Visiting Fellowship:
For those scientists who cannot make the requirement of several months’ stays at TUM, TUM-IAS offers Visiting Fellowships. TUM-IAS supports these short stays with travel and accommodation funding.
