Travel Grant to Participate at Conferences and for Short-Term Research Trips (for up to four weeks)

Exchange with other scientists and young researchers is of central importance for doctoral students. The Graduate Academy supports doctoral students with travel grants for attending conferences and congresses/symposia/workshops. Also, shorter research trips up to the duration of four weeks can be supported. The travel grant is paid as lump-sum to mitigate the costs invested for participating at national and international conferences, congresses or symposia. The amount of the lump-sum is based on the respective conference venue or destination of the short-term research trip. The following lump-sums apply:

  • Germany: 150 Euros
  • Europe: 400 Euros
  • Outside Europe: 800 Euros

Registered doctoral students of Leibniz Universität Hannover can apply for this funding. Selection criteria will include the scientific excellence of the doctoral student as well as the active participation at the conference (oral or poster presentation). In the case of passive conference participation or in the event of a short-term research trip the doctoral student has to prove the scientific evidence of the benefit to be gained by the conference or research trip.

Applications for the travel grant are possible quarterly at the end of each quarter. The deadlines for application are 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December, respectively. The Graduate Academy selects the grant-holders within approx. two weeks. As a rule, applications for travel grants are due prior to the research trip, taken into consideration the respective deadlines. Applications that have not been submitted in time cannot be taken into consideration.
