Research and Scholarships

In today's knowledge society, research and scholarship provide educational opportunities for individuals and promote progress for society as a whole.

Tomorrow's society will depend on today's academic debates and research findings - in Germany, Europe and in our globalized world. For this reason, the ZEIT-Stiftung has placed scholarship and research at the top of its agenda.

The foundation supports innovative, international teaching and research projects as well as new areas of research. Funding is provided for talented young academics engaged in international and interdisciplinary studies. The focus is on law studies and the humanities, particularly law, social and historical sciences, cultural studies, and philosophy. Much of its commitment is centred on Hamburg's academic institutions (the Bucerius Law School was founded in 2000 in the hanseatic city), and the foundation is also engaged in academic projects in Israel, especially at the University of Haifa.
