Junior Research Fund - Nachwuchsfoerderfonds

Financial support for scientific qualification

The Graduate School provides funding for a range of qualification measures from the so-called Nachwuchsfoerderfonds (NWF). You can, for example, apply for funding if you wish to take part in a conference, are planning a short study visit or want to organise a conference yourself.

Funding is available for doctoral students, postdocs and assistant professors at Leuphana. The type of funding varies between these three groups. Please follow the links to find out about the funding options available to you.

+++ Please note the following information. +++

The regulations on business trips valid at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg at the time of the measure also apply to applications for support for a qualification measure.

We thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!
