Nomination Entitlement

An established academic who is employed by a university or research institution in Germany must take the initiative to nominate a candidate for the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award. Nominations may also be initiated by award winners of the Humboldt Foundation working abroad, provided that the nomination is made jointly with a colleague working in Germany. Close relatives (parents, brothers/sisters, children) and spouses/partners are not eligible for nomination. Self-nomination is not possible.

Nomination Prerequisites

The nominee’s outstanding academic qualification must be internationally recognised and documented by corresponding successes in research, such as positively received academic publications or previous awards. The Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award can only be granted once to any one academic. Researchers who have already received an award for their academic achievements from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation are not eligible to be nominated.

Furthermore, the nominee should not have recently won any awards or fellowships in Germany for his or her academic achievements. At the time of nomination, the nominated candidate must have been predominantly living and working abroad for at least five years. Moreover, the nominee must not have held or accepted an offer of permanent employment in Germany prior to the selection date. In cases of doubt, please contact the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in advance.

Nominating academics must guarantee that they can provide the necessary infrastructure for the award winner’s own research projects or lecture tours (e.g. access to libraries, materials, facilities). German hosts are also expected to be well prepared for the award winner’s research stay and to act as his or her personal mentor (e.g. finding accommodation).
