External funding for conference participation, research stays and special courses abroad

Numerous sponsors offer funding specifically for participation in conferences and lecture tours as well as special courses (e.g. methods courses). We have listed some general examples below. You can search for all other funding schemes and scholarships in the scholarship databases according to your own criteria. Conference organizers often award a certain quota of travel scholarships for young researchers for the conference in question. Corresponding information can be found on the respective conference websites. Please note that you should plan sufficient time for your application.

Congress and lecture tour programme (DAAD)

In the framework of its Congress and Lecture Tour Programme and with funding from the Federal Foreign Office, the DAAD supports the active participation of German researchers in congresses and lecture tours abroad. This is conditional on topically important thematic contributions being of significance for researchers’ further scientific development.

Financing of special courses

The DAAD finances participation in special courses through the PROMOS programme. Funding is allocated to students and doctoral researchers for a period from between five days and six weeks. Applications from HHU members should be submitted via the HHU’s International Office.
