Dr. Wilhelmy-GSO Travel Expenses Program
German Scholars Organization e.V.
Phone.: +49 (0) 30 2060 5270
We are happy to receive applications at anytime.
The program is exclusively for the so-called STEM subjects with a technical focus.
New since 2021: International scientists can be funded as well as german applicants.
When planning to take a job in Germany researchers abroad are often confronted not just with the problem of the time needed to attend a job interview in Germany but also the costs involved. For their part, public research institutions and universities are often unable to pay travel expenses from abroad.
The Dr. Wilhelmy-GSO Travel Expenses Program supports
- public universities,
- university of applied sciences, and
- non-university research institutes
in their efforts to recruit staff internationally.
Under this program, travel expenses for attending job interviews in Germany from abroad can be refunded to a maximum of €2,000.
The program focuses exclusively on the so-called STEM subjects, including
- science (Chemistry, Physics, Biology…)
- technology, (Computer Science,…)
A prerequisite for a successful application is a technical focus on the research subject.
