scholarship program

Scholarship program of the GDCh Division of Solid-State Chemistry & Materials Research

The GDCh Division of Solid-State Chemistry & Materials Research Research supports the activities of young scientists by awarding a limited number of partial scholarships. Young members of the specialist group (doctorate, postdoc, habilitation) thus have the opportunity to access additional financial means to attend national and international Conferences . The prerequisite for funding is active participation in the Conference (lecture or poster). The topic and content of the Conference should be closely related to your own field of work. All applications are evaluated by a committee consisting of selected members of the Divisions board. The Division normally supports participation in a maximum of one national and one international Conference per year and per person.
