for Future Leaders in Business Studies, Economics, Law, and the Social Sciences

The Schumpeter Fellowships – named after Joseph Alois Schumpeter, one of the most successful economists and social scientists of the 20th century – aim at supporting outstanding young scholars in economics, social science, and law who wish to open up new areas of research in interdisciplinary projects.

The projects should fathom and transcend the boundaries of disciplines regarding subjects and methods or contribute to academic reorientation by cooperating beyond the common combination of disciplines.

The ‘Freigeist’ Fellowships initiative (start summer 2012) builds upon the previous funding scheme for the Dilthey- and Schumpeter Fellowships and the junior research groups.
