Fostering intercultural connections

Second call for applications for early career researchers from Africa, Asia and Latin America launched

The Zukunftskolleg is pleased to announce a new call for Zukunftskolleg Konnect Fellowships (former AAA Fellowships). 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 ZUKOnnect Fellowships will help to strengthen the cultural diversity at the Zukunftskolleg and will thereby promote and stimulate the intellectual and integrative discourse amongst our fellows. By broadening our academic horizons to countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, we want to advance intercontinental dialogue in research.  

The Fellowships have a duration of three to four months, which gives the fellows enough time to extend their research networks into new regions, and initiate intercontinental research partnerships. The research stays at the Zukunftskolleg also enable ZUKOnnect Fellows to get to know the research environment at the University of Konstanz and enrich the scientific discussions within the university, without losing ties to their home university.

The Fellows will team up with Zukunftskolleg Fellows who will assist them with settling into their departments and will support them during their entire research stay. Thus, the ZUKOnnect Fellows will be an integral part of the community at the Zukunftskolleg, regardless of the rather short duration. Zukunftskolleg Fellows likewise will benefit greatly from the intercultural exchange.
