All PhD students of the Graduate School OLTECH can apply for this grants.

NEW exception: Applications  for travels from July to December 2022 can still be handed in, due to the current situation (impact of the Corona pandemic) and residual funds are available. Applications must be submitted by email at least six weeks before the start of the trip.

The amount of the travel grants will be 50 % of the expected travel cost reduced by further external fundings. If we receive more applications for travel grants than we are able to fund, the grants will be distributed based on an internal ranking for each faculty.
