"Take some time away from home..."


Within the HGS-HIRe Abroad program participants can file a research proposal for a research stay abroad for a period of one to three months. The research stay must be a natural part of the thesis project and can only be conducted at institutions that are already collaborating with the home institution / local working group of the applicant. Furthermore, only one HGS-HIRe Abroad grant can be approved per participantship in HGS-HIRe.

A limited number of HGS-HIRe Abroad grants is awarded in a competitive process several times per year.

If you are interested to apply for one of the HGS-HIRe Abroad grants please submit a short research plan (2-4 pages) together with supporting letters by your local supervisor and foreign host supervisor together with a rough cost estimate not later than
October 1, 2017.

Grant coverage includes a per diem appropriate for the host country (according to DAAD rules) plus travel costs. The maximimum grant coverage is 3000 Euros.
