GERMANY, CERES–Center for Religious Studies of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum: Funding Program for Ukrainian Researchers

CERES finances research stays and visiting professorships of up to six months. The funding applies to all career stages, from doctoral students to visiting professors, and includes both travel expenses and a monthly amount to cover the costs of accommodation and living expenses.

Within the framework of the funding, the visiting researchers work together with other colleagues in one of the CERES research groups.

CERES, the Center for Religious Studies, is one of the largest centers for the comparative study of religion in Europe. It hosts multiple third-party-funded research projects, including two ERC Consolidator Grants and a Collaborative Research Center (SFB). With its 40+ researchers, CERES covers historical and philological work, but also cutting-edge theoretical projects and contemporary studies. We are committed to excellence in teaching, with a BA program in German and an MA program in English, and aim to create an environment that
retains and supports a diverse range of talents in the humanities. Moreover, we invest in multiple knowledge transfer projects, ranging from the development of awareness trainings in religious diversity for teachers, policemen, and administrators, to film projects, and exhibitions.
