Junior Research Fund - Nachwuchsfoerderfonds

The Graduate School supports young academics in various qualification measures within the framework of the Junior Research Fund, the so-called Nachwuchsfoerderfonds (NWF). If, for example, you want to participate in a conference, plan a short-term research stay or organise a conference yourself, you can apply for financial support.
The type of funding differs according to the different status groups like doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Please follow our links to find out more about your personal funding opportunities.

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
