Special IPN Fellowships for researchers in science and mathematics education, and from the fields of psychology and educational sciences from Ukraine

The IPN - Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education is offering support for researchers in science and mathematics education, and from the fields of educational psychology and educational sciences from academic institutions in Ukraine, who have recently left the country due to the ongoing Russian attack on Ukraine.

The special fellowship program is an offer for refugees from Ukraine in the Kiel (and Berlin) area, who hold a master’s degree or higher in science or mathematics education, psychology, or education sciences or a closely related field and have pursued research in the mentioned fields at a university or other academic institution in Ukraine within the past year (exceptions to this one-year rule may apply due to parental leave etc.). The aim of the program is to enable refugees to continue their research and start new collaborations at the IPN, the Kiel University and/or HU Berlin. The fellowship comes with a monthly stipend for 3-6 months to cover the cost of living in or around Kiel (or Berlin). The stipend is roughly between 1400 and 2400 Euro per month, depending on qualification and family situation.
