award criteria for GGG-scholarships

Besides the scientific potential, the executive board of GGG takes diversity aspects (in particular gender, compatibility of family and science, internationality, social background and disability or chronic disease) and their intersectional implications into account when deciding on scholarships. Especially concerning the emergency grant they are a decisive factor.
Regarding the Family oriented Completion Grant of GGG the family’s income in total is factored into the decision on the grant application: i.e. applications from families with lower income as well as those from single parents are treated as priority.
Furthermore, working or having worked in the university self-government as well as other kinds of volunteer engagement are positively referred to.
The GGG funding measures do not have an age limit.

The awarding of a scholarship at the same time as employment at the University of Göttingen (also as a research assistant = studentische Hilfskraft, wissenschaftliche Hilfkraft) is excluded. If you would like to apply for the scholarship directly following or prior to a position at the University of Göttingen, please contact Bettina Roß before applying (
