Allowances for research trips

GSGG aims to support trips made for research purposes to libraries, archives, museums and academic collections as well as trips made for field study and data collection purposes that are closely related to the subject of the doctoral thesis.

Only doctoral candidates until their disputation are entitled to apply.

From 1 April 2022, Stage 0 of the Covid 19 Stage Plan will come into force; travel to destinations in Germany and abroad is possible. Only in the case of travel to virus variant areas, the necessity of the trip must be especially checked. If you have any questions, please contact us before submitting your application.

Domestic travel
The requirements for travel grant awards (conference and research travel) are aligned with the University's COVID 19 level plan. For example, among other things, the opinion of a supervisor is omitted when applying for travel grants when Levels 0 and 1 are valid. The regulations apply to doctoral students with as well as without employee status.

Trips abroad
Travel abroad is possible at present; special examination is required for travel to a virus-variant area.
