  • If your project relates primarily to the integration of migrants and refugees in Germany, please send your project idea to the Immigration Society team in our support area of Active Citizenship. 
  • We can only support individuals within the context of project-specific calls for submissions. This also applies to individual PhD projects or other scholarships. Please check our current open calls to see whether there is anything suitable for you.
  • Humanitarian aid is an important approach to relieving distress in acute emergency situations and requires special expertise. As our strategic focus is on handling issues of the future, we would ask you not to request support for acute emergency relief projects. The same applies to requests for help with material acquisition or infrastructure projects. 
  • Projects that are outside of our focus regions must have global relevance.
  • We are unable to support the development, piloting or implementation of technologies and applications.
