Applications are open for the Albert Einstein Scholarship in 2022. With the scholarship award, the Einstein Forum and the Daimler and Benz Foundation are looking to offer exceptional young scientists from Germany and overseas the chance to execute a research project that is outside of their past work.
The objective of the Albert Einstein Scholarship award is to assist those young Universalists who – like Albert Einstein – are not only distinguished by their exceptional accomplishments in a particular scientific field, but also by their interdisciplinary devotion.
The scholarship award is connected to a stay in the Einstein’s summer house in Caputh, which takes between five and six months. The Einsteinhaus is a house of importance in terms of both science and architecture history, with links to the universities of Berlin and Potsdam.
The Einstein Forum is an establishment of the German federal state of Brandenburg that helps the public as an open laboratory of the mind. Via a varied program of seminars, conferences, podium discourses, and lectures it brings together criticak thinkers from all around the world to test new concepts—and question orthodox ones—with a general audience.
Topics cut across the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities, ethics and politics. Whatever the field, speakers are admonished to reason outside conventional academic borders. Their multidisciplinary focus inspires dialogue not only among professionals from various fields but also, and just as significantly, between specialists and the public generally. Underlying the Einstein Forum’s programming, together with the books and articles published by the staff, is an enduring belief that thinking has a function above and beyond advancing intellectual and scientific knowledge.
