We will present funding programs and provide an opportunity to get in touch with researchers at risk interested in a fellowship respectively potential hosts.Various German research funding organisations have expanded their programs with the aim of enabling scholars at risk to continue to pursue academic activities by integrating them in the German academic system in the short and medium term. The DFG, for example, funds cooperation in existing projects and has made the application process easier and better accessible for scholars at risk; the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation have special research fellowship programmes, and the DAAD has a scholarship programme for students and doctoral candidates at risk. In addition to these scholars-at-risk specific programs, various other stipends and funding opportunities for an own position will be presented. These and further funding lines are also listed on the ICES website (
