Guidelines for individual financial support for Master's students for the participation in conferences and workshops abroad
Master's students can apply for financial support to attend conferences or workshops abroad once during their two years of study.
Active participation in study-relevant workshops, conferences and seminars, insofar as they are conducive to achieving the study objectives.
Longer field trips abroad or events with the single purpose of networking cannot be funded.
Language and specialized courses abroad cannot be funded; the DAAD PROMOS programme is available for this purpose.
The funding by the University of Erfurt can amount to a maximum of 200 EUR for academic events in Europe and a maximum of 300 EUR for academic events outside Europe, but this amount does not have to be maxed out.
Only travel costs (including accommodation) and participation fees can be covered. Please consider the legal requirements for covering travel costs in the State of Thuringia’s law on travelling expenses (“Thüringer Reisekostengesetz”).
Following the event, sponsored students must submit proof of attendance (tickets, confirmation of attendance, or similar).
The costs will be reimbursed following the event upon presentation of the invoices, which must be at least the amount of the granted subsidy, by means of a declaration of acceptance.
