The ZUKOnnect Fellowships support early career researchers from Africa, Asia and Latin America related to one of the thirteen departments of the University of Konstanz. The research stays at the Zukunftskolleg give the fellows enough time to extend their research networks into new regions, and initiate intercontinental research partnerships. They also enable ZUKOnnect Fellows to enrich the scientific discussions within the university, without losing ties to their home university. The Zukunftskolleg offers annual calls, the next call will be published in late autumn 2022.
