Fur­ther fun­ding op­ti­ons

International and German doctoral students of the University of Kassel can apply for support in order to take part in conferences or workshops abroad if no other funding is still available, e.g. through the DAAD (e.g. due to deadlines). 

Required documents:

  • Letter of Motivation
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Statement from your doctoral adviser
  • Copy of PhD acceptance letter
  • Confirmation of an active role at the event (presentation/poster), e.g. invitation by the organizer
  • Programme of the event
  • Possibly proof of payment of a participation fee

The support is based on the DAAD's congress and lecture travel programme. The amount of support, however, is a maximum of 80% of the funding that would have been provided by the DAAD. In case of funding, an additional 80% of the costs for participation fees can be covered up to a maximum of 150 Euros. In any case, the maximum support is limited to 1.500 Euros.
