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 a Post Doctoral Lecturer 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.
