GDCh special fund for regional structures

According to the decision of the GDCh board, since 2007 local association chairmen and JCF regional and JCF national spokesmen have had the opportunity to apply for funds for specific projects and events from the GDCh special fund. In addition, active local associations with a colloquia program that goes beyond the usual range can, under certain conditions, receive lump-sum allowances from the GDCh special fund since 2010.

Local association chairmen and JCF spokespersons can apply for funds for specific projects and events from the GDCh special fund. Requirements for a permit:

Request application

The grant for a local association or JCF event from the GDCh special fund can only be applied for by a local association chairman, a JCF regional forum or JCF national spokesperson. The form can be requested by email. The completed application should be received at least three weeks before the event begins in the headquarters. Approvals, partial approvals and denials are possible.


For tax reasons, the approved amount can only be transferred to the relevant local association or young chemist account. The granted grant must be settled with the GDCh accounting department after the event.

... for the OV colloquia program

Active local associations whose colloquia program includes more than three lectures per semester have been able to apply for a flat rate of 300 euros from the GDCh special fund for each additional lecture since 2010. These additional events should deal with topics of general interest, which excludes in particular inaugural lectures, name lectures, institute colloquia and other typical departmental events. The corresponding entries of all OV events held in the

GDCh event calendar .<br> The application must be submitted informally by <a class="Pfeil" title="GDCh-Sonderfonds: Informal application for a lump-sum subsidy for the colloquia program" href="mailto:e.kling@gdch.de">email to Ms. Kling</a>.</p>
