The Amalie Baur Fellowship was established at TUM in 2016 to attract and promote excellent early career scientists from Social and Cultural Sciences, which otherwise would have no access to the TUM or the TUM-IAS. The Fellowship has been named after Amalie Baur, the first woman who completed her doctorate at TUM (Dr. Ing., 1918). The Fellowship is open to outstanding early career scientists, who have completed their doctorate within the past 12 years. Self-nominations are not possible. The Fellows and their projects need to be embedded in one of the departments or Integrative Research Centers at TUM. The funding for this Fellowship is provided either by the TUM Board of Management or by one of the TUM departments. TUM-IAS coordinates the evaluation and selection process or the Fellowship.
