Research Travel Grant

With the Research Travel Grant, we support your travel and living expenses for a three to six-month research stay at a university or company abroad. The stay abroad should be an extension of your research work and not constitute a fundamental component thereof.

Use the opportunity to get to know other scientific systems, expand your scientific and intercultural skills, establish international contacts and strengthen your future career options. 

On our website you will find more sponsors who financially support stays abroad:

▶ For Doctoral Researchers

▶ For Postdocs
