GCSC Travel Grants

Next deadline: The next meeting of the Executive Board has been re-scheduled to 11 December. Please submit your applications for this meeting until the morning of 7 December to be considered for this meeting.


Eligibility for travel grant applications:

PhD student members and postdoctoral fellows at the GCSC become eligible to apply for travel grants after 3 months of membership. Depending on their financial scale, the GCSC will usually fund 3-5 research and conference trips per person.

How to proceed:

If we have any questions regarding your travel claim, you will receive feedback from the Team Graduate Studies before we officially pass your application on to the Executive Board.


JLU staff (also applies to WiMis and AHKs) must include in addition:

  • the “Dienstreiseanzeige” form, which you may submit along with your application;
  • for trips within the EU, the European Economic Area, or Switzerland, and depending on the destination and length of your trip, a “Bescheinigung A1”. Please check the JLU’s guidelines (German only) and, if necessary, download the appropriate form, or get in touch with Lena Nüchter (Team Graduate Studies) if you have questions.
