The Helmholtz Alliance for Astroparticle Physics (HAP) offers scholarships for young researchers (master and PhD students according to the German university system or equivalent degree) to gain international experience in the field of astroparticle physics.
Young scientists from abroad can apply for a research visit at a German institution and scientists affiliated in Germany for a research visit at an institution in Argentina, France, The Netherlands, Russia, or USA where at least the host institution for the visit is either a HAP member institution, a HAP associated partner or an official collaborator of one of the HAP-related experiments.
