Financial support of mobility

The Rector's Commission for Diversity, Equality and Inclusion also supports the mobility of doctoral candidates.

The aim of this programme is to ensure equality and to compensate for disadvantages with regard to international mobility, networking and visibility of doctoral students at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg by awarding travel grants.

The award of these grants is regulated in the Regulations for the award of travel allowances to compensate disadvantages and to promote equality for young academics at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg (Non-official reading version - English translation of the Ordnung zur Vergabe von Reisekostenzuschüssen zum Nachteilsausgleich sowie zur Gleichstellungsförderung für den wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs an der TU Bergakademie Freiberg).

It should be noted that, according to the above-mentioned regulations, there is - prior to submitting an application - a duty of consultation with the GraFA. To do this, contact theresa [dot] wandeatgrafa [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de (Mrs Dr. Theresa Wand) in good time.

A list of the application documents to be submitted can be found in the Regulations for the award of travel allowances in §4, paragraph (3).

It is also pointed out that applications will only be considered if an application for travel funding (participation in conferences, research stays) was previously submitted to other organizations and rejected. The evidence of the rejection is to be attached to the application to be submitted to the RK DGI of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

Following the application procedure described in § 4 of the regulations applications for this grant are possible four times a year with application deadlines on February 28, May 31, August 30 and November 30.
