German Society of Humboldtians

The German Society of Humboldtians offers a forum of encounter for the "Humboldt family" in Germany. To this family belong


  • by the 'Alexander von Humboldt Foundation' (AvH) selected scientists - whether they have just received a scholarship or have been back a long time - but also    
  •  longtime hosts and members of selection committees, if they have also conducted research abroad.

The German Society of Humboldtians 

  • would like to maintain the personal contact of the alumni beyond the scholarship phase, to intensify the exchange with each other and to facilitate mutual assistance in the integration of foreign and reintegration of German Humboldtians.
  • provides advice from the perspective of alumni for the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and seeks dialogue with other Humboldt Associations.
  • based on diverse experience with different cultures, it also deals with modern society and its current changes. The diversity of the Humboldt family, which knows no professional barriers, offers ideal conditions for this.
  • is regionally organized to ensure that every interested Humboldtian can participate with reasonable effort in the activities of the German Society of Humboltians in its vicinity.
