International exchanges are all about language and living

International exchanges drive scientific endeavour and innovation, as well boosting cross-cultural understanding. Australian Toby Lea has just started a two-year fellowship from Germany’s Humboldt Foundation. He told Gerd Winter how he won the fellowship and his first impressions of Germany.

The Humboldt Research Fellowship programme supports early-career researchers from other countries, including all nationalities and disciplines, to carry out a project in Germany for between six and 24 months.

Social scientist Toby Lea’s Humboldt fellowship, which supports him with €2,650 per month (tax free), includes a stipend for a four-month language course before the start of his research project.
