Institute Scholarship Program

Scholarships for International Researchers

Due to the corona pandemic, there will be considerably less workstations in the library available in 2021. The Institute’s management have therefore decided to suspend the awarding of scholarships for 2021 until further notice. Accordingly, for the time being, we cannot accept scholarship applications. When the Institute returns to offering scholarships, we will inform you immediately here.

How to Apply

The Max Planck Institute offers a limited number of short-term scholarships (maximum of 3 months) for legal scholars whose primary place of residence is outside of Germany. The scholarships are financed by the Max Planck Society and are awarded each year in connection with two windows of application. [more]
