The Jung Foundation for Science and Research supports cutting-edge human medical research through awards currently totaling 540,000 euros per year. This makes them one of the most-highly endowed awards in Europe. In addition, the Jung Foundation annually awards five fellowships in the field of human medicine and one fellowship in the field of medical history at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, as well as three "Deutschlandstipendien" to students of human medicine at the University of Hamburg. In total, the foundation provides funding worth €650,000.
JUNG FELLOWSHIP FOR MEDICINE
In 2022, the foundation also extended its support to young scientific and medical talent and therefore launched the Jung Fellowship Program. The program, which is initially limited to Hamburg, is designed to support selected medical doctoral students to conduct full-time research for one year. The stipend of 15,000 euros is paid out in monthly installments of 1,250 euros over the course of a year. The money is not earmarked for a specific purpose. In addition to financial support, the program offers other benefits, such as contacts with outstanding scientists in the field and participation in the Jung Symposium for Medical Research, at which Jung Foundation award winners present their excellent research.

The program, which is initially limited to the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, is intended to support selected doctoral students in medicine to conduct full-time research for one year. The scholarship of 15,000 euros is paid out in monthly installments of 1,250 euros over the course of a year. The money is not earmarked for a specific purpose.
