Scholarship program

Scholarship program of the GDCh Division of Biochemistry

The Division of Biochemistry of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) supports the activities of young scientists with various scholarship opportunities. Younger members of the specialist group should be able to obtain financial support for actively attending national and international Conferences, seminars or workshops as part of their training through conference grants. General conditions:


  • Target group: PhD students, postdocs,
  • Prerequisite: active participation in the event, i.e. presentation of a lecture or poster,
  • Promotion of participation in a national or an international Conference per person and year,
  • All events should have a clear connection to biochemistry and their own research work.

1. Convention grants for national events

Active participation in selected national events (e.g. "Biochemistry" Division conference ) is particularly encouraged by the Division of Biochemistry by awarding individually advertised scholarships.

Biochemistry 2024 (September 30th - October 2nd, 2024; Dortmund)

In order to enable young department members (MSc, PhD) to actively participate (i.e. with poster or lecture presentations) in Biochemistry 2024, the Division of Biochemistry is awarding a limited number of travel scholarships of a maximum of 250 euros each.
