With the Research Travel Grant we subsidize your travel and living expenses for a research stay abroad at a university or company lasting a period of three to six months. The research stay abroad is meant to broaden the scope of your research work. You will get to know other science systems, develop your scientific and intercultural skills and expertise and establish international contacts that will enable you to strengthen your future career opportunities.
For more information, please refer to our current scholarship availabilities and application procedure.
On our website you can find a list of other funding institutions that can financially support your research stay abroad.
The KHYS Research Travel Grant is not available for participation in congresses and conferences.
Please also consider the following funding options offered by the KHYS:
- The Aspirant Grant enables KIT professors to invite foreign graduates who are interested in doing their doctorate at KIT to come here for a one-month stay.
- The Internship Grant offers doctoral researchers at KIT the opportunity to supervise a master student from abroad during a three-month internship at KIT.
The International Collaboration Package is a modular funding package that is aimed at KIT professors, the heads of KIT institutes or heads of certified KIT junior research groups. The objective of the measure is to promote the mobility and networking of doctoral researchers and sustainably establish these by means of intensifying existing international collaboration.
