Fur­ther fund­ing op­tions

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

Required Documents:

  • Letter of Motivation
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Statement from your supervisor
  • Copy of PhD acceptance letter
  • Confirmation of an active role at the event (presentation/poster), e.g. invitation by the organiser
  • Programme of the event
  • Proof of payment of a participation fee (only if applicable)

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


Applications can be submitted either in German or in English via email. Please always send applications to both contact persons!
