The Caroline von Humboldt Prize is awarded annually to a female postdoc and enables the winner to carry out
a research project at Humboldt-Universität (“Scientist in Residence”).

The Caroline von Humboldt-Prize is designed to offer sustainable support to exceptional female scientists active in any field of research and to provide more recognition for the outstanding achievements of women in science. Recipients are selected by an independent selection committee presided by the Vice President for Research at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Eligible are female scientists who do not hold a tenured professorship and whose PhD was completed not more than seven years ago (plus two years per child, if applicable).

Candidates for the award can only be nominated by professors from universities and external research institutions in Germany and beyond.
