Wolfgang Schulenberg-Programme

This program provides travel grants to qualified young researchers of the University of Oldenburg to allow them to participate in international conferences abroad.

Anyone wanting to succeed as a scientist today needs to start getting the attention of their peers as early as possible. This is why doctoral students usually start publishing even before obtaining their PhD. And it is just as important for them to put in an appearance at international conferences early on in their career, allowing them to make a name for themselves, be inspired by others and, above all, make useful contacts.

Conference trips, especially abroad, are not cheap, but only scientists with a doctorate can apply for travel grants at the relevant research funding institutions. This is where the Wolfgang Schulenberg-Programme comes in: Young academics with interesting research results should not have to forego a conference trip for financial reasons.

Potential applicants: students and doctoral candidates who are able to present tangible results in connection with their thesis.

Applications can be submitted at any time before the conference. In order to avoid handwriting legibility issues, please submit a typed application via email ( and/or via mail if possible. The University Society decides about the received applications semi-annually.
