Funding Possibilities


"Gleichstellungsgelder" are funds that are used to support (female) students and academics at the Faculty of Humanities in their work. Among the things that are supported are, for example

  • Research trips in connection to theses or other academic projects
  • Conference participation
  • Career-related training
  • Graduate colloquia or workshops
  • Events that thematically fall under the Women's Representatives' purview

The form to apply for funding via the "Gleichstellungsmittel" (in German) can be found here(290.1 KB, 2 pages).

Applications can be submitted twice a year:

Winter Term: October 30th

Summer Term: April 30th

Every (female) student or academic can apply for funding once per calendar year and may not exceed 150 Euro. This holds for students in B.A. and M.A. programs as well as for PhD candidates and Habilitation candidates.

The Faculty of Humanities' guidelines for the allocation of funding coming out of the "Gleichstellungsgelder" can be found here(153.3 KB, 1 page).

Further Funding Opportunities

In addition to the Faculty Women's Representatives, (female) students and academics can also turn to the University's Women's Representatives for funding and other, varied support. All information can be found here.
