Application Deadline

We are happy to receive your application at anytime. There is no deadline.

Note: The program is exclusively for the so-called STEM subjects.

Idea

When planning a return to Germany, German 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 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 is exclusively for the so-called STEM subjects.
