Until 25 February 2024, there are two ways to apply online for travel grants for active participants. You can find the application forms in the portal meineDVPW.

DFG travel grant for participants from abroad

Until 25 February 2024, you can apply for a travel grant for yourself (as a speaker) or for speakers on your panel or roundtable (as an organiser) if the speaker(s) work(s) at a research institution outside Germany and are travelling to the convention from abroad. The German Research Foundation (DFG) thus promotes the internationalisation of annual conferences of academic associations. The DVPW collects the individual applications and submits them to the DFG in a bundle. Whether and to what extent a travel grant can be paid depends on the DFG's approval. For the payment of the grant for accommodation and travelling expenses, corresponding receipts must be submitted to the DVPW after the convention. Travel allowances can only be granted for economy flights or 2nd class rail travel. In addition to the personal details, we require a brief explanation (1-2 sentences) of the special significance of the speaker for our discipline in relation to the panel or roundtable.

DVPW travel grant for early career scholars

As an early career scholar (Q-Wissenschaftler*in), you can apply until 25 February 2024 for a travel allowance of 250 euros from the DVPW for yourself if you

  • are a DVPW member,
  • give at least one lecture on a panel or roundtable during the DVPW Convention, and
  • cannot claim your participation in the convention as a business trip.

The Executive Committee has set up a "Q Fund" for the convention. We will inform you as soon as it has decided on the applications. For the payment of the subsidy for accommodation and travel expenses, appropriate receipts must be submitted to the DVPW after the convention.

Accommodation in Göttingen

We have reserved a limited number of hotel rooms in Göttingen, which you can book online.
