Fritz-Thyssen-Stiftung Grants in Medicine and Life Sciences



The Fritz Thyssen Foundation has been a reliable partner for researchers working in the humanities, social science and medicine since 1961, the year it began its active work. Originally funded with a stock package of August Thyssen-Hütte AG valued at DM 100 million, it has contributed more than EUR 400 million to scholarly research at universities and non-profit research centres over this period.

The Fritz Thyssen Foundation supports research in the fields of history, language and culture, state, economics, society and medicine, devoting special attention to support for junior researchers. The award of grants to doctoral graduates and the funding of staff positions in projects help lay the material foundations for scientific work.

In accordance with one of the desires of the donors, special attention is devoted by the foundation institutions to medical research.  Types of projects supported include Research projects, conferences, stipends, travel subsidies, etc.

Applications can only be filed by scholars from a school of higher learning or a non-profit research institution in Germany or foreign countries.
