CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship 2025 (Funded)

The CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship supports you – postdoctoral researchers and experienced researchers – with your research in Germany. In 2013, the Brazilian research funding organisation CAPES (Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation launched the CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship Programme. As a fellow, you will benefit from individual support from the Humboldt Foundation and their diverse sponsorship portfolio. The CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship allows you to conduct your own research at various stages of your career in collaboration with a host at a German research institution of your choice. Host institutes will generally receive a subsidy towards research costs.

Benefits of CAPES-Humboldt Research

  • Postdocs: Benefit from research sponsorship in Germany at the beginning of your academic career. The CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship for Brazilian postdoctoral researchers enables you to conduct research in Germany. The monthly fellowship amount is €2,600. Fellowships may last from 6 to 24 months.
  • Experienced researchers: You can still apply for research sponsorship in Germany even if you are already well advanced in your academic career. The CAPES-Humboldt Research Fellowship for experienced Brazilian researchers enables you to conduct research in Germany. The fellowship amount is €3,100. Fellowships may last from 6 to 18 months and can be divided into up to three stays within three years.

General conditions

  • In addition to the fellowship amount, you will also receive personal support throughout your sponsorship. Prior to your research fellowship, you and your marital partner will be able to attend an intensive language course. You are then flexible to determine the start date of your fellowship yourself.
  • Further financial support, including family benefits for children and marital partners and allowances for travel expenses, is also available.

Alumni programmes

  • They stay in contact even after your research stay has come to an end. Their alumni sponsorship measures flexibly support every Humboldtian’s individual journey through life in both their careers and future research collaborations. A return fellowship or later visits to Germany are also possible.
