This fellowship programme is meant to invite outstanding scholars from any field of study to spend a short length of time (up to twelve days) conducting research at the University of Bonn. Scholars from universities that are key partners and universities located in countries that are priorities for international engagement will be given preference.

The goal is to integrate the fellows as deeply as possible into the academic life of Bonn and to bring them to the attention of the general public (or at the very least, the scholarly public). In addition to that, the recipients and candidates of these fellowships are meant to be given new opportunities to work together on joint projects in the future.

The Institution of Bonn is a public research university located in Bonn, which is located in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. This university, which was established in 1818, has a stellar reputation not just as one of the most prestigious educational establishments in Germany but also as one of the most prestigious research-based universities in the entire globe. This university promptly reopened its doors after World War II, and it has never wavered in its dedication to the achievement of its long-term objective, which is to earn a good reputation on a widespread scale. As a consequence of the establishment of brand-new facilities on its main campus and the expansion of its range of specialised subject matter, this educational establishment evolved to adopt a more global perspective.

The institution has a total faculty of around 6,400 people, with 540 people holding the position of professor. The teachers at this university are all extremely accomplished in their respective professions, and they were all recruited utilising a tried-and-true method of personnel selection. Notable researchers affiliated with this university have been awarded a combined total of over 154 million euros in third-party funding in addition to a pair of Nobel prizes, many Leibniz prizes, and other academic honours. This university offers more than 200 degree programmes across a wide range of disciplines.
