The Gerda Henkel Foundation supports research projects in the historical humanities, particularly within the fields of:
- art history
- historical Islamic studies
- history of law
- history of science
- early history
The grants for research projects involve, depending on the type of project, the assumption of costs for personnel, travel, materials and/or other costs.
The Foundation generally accepts applications for research projects made by universities, other research institutes or comparable institutions as well as by one or several PhDs or scholars with Post Doctoral Lecture Qualification. The applicants must be involved in the research work of the project. Project staff on research projects may only be financed by PhD or research grants.
A fundamental prerequisite for a grant is that project staff conduct their own research, which is published under their name. As part of a research project, the costs incurred of visiting (foreign) scholars can also be financed.
