Scholarship program

Scholarship program of the GDCh Division of Chemistry & Energy

The Division of Chemistry & Energy of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) supports the activities of young scientists by awarding conference scholarships. The aim is to give younger specialist group members the opportunity to gain opportunities to actively participate in selected Conferences, seminars or workshops as part of their training.

General conditions:


  • Target group: student specialist group members
  • Prerequisite: active participation in the event, i.e. lecture or poster presentation
  • All conference contributions have a clear connection to the topic of chemistry and energy.

1. Conference scholarships for selected events

Active participation in selected events (e.g. Division conference) is particularly encouraged by the Division of Chemistry & Energy by awarding individually advertised travel grants.

There are currently no travel grants available for selected conferences.

2. Conference scholarships for freely selectable events

The Division of Chemistry & Energy awards a limited number of travel scholarships to student group members for active participation in freely selectable Conferences. These can be obtained at any time from Dr. Carina S. Kniep under the keyword “Chemistry & Energy Conference Grant” must be applied for no later than three weeks before the start of the event. Each application contains the following documents:


  • completed application form,
  • Abstract of the conference contribution (poster/ lecture),
  • short explanation (2-3 sentences) to what extent the conference contribution is relevant to the topic of chemistry & energy (e.g. energetic application),
  • Confirmation of acceptance of the conference contribution,
  • Proof of registration.

Maximum funding amount: 250 euros
