Please understand that incomplete applications will not be forwarded, nor will we try to figure out for you which scheme might be the most adequate one.

In any case, please include in your application the full contact details of the applicant (incl. institution, address, phone and email) and the grant you are applying for.

The German Society for Plant Nutrition DGP awards young scientist travel grants of up to € 500.

The program intends to promote doctoral and PhD candidates as well as to early-career stage postdocs by supporting their participation in conferences in plant nutrition or closely related subjects. The conference contribution of the grant applicants must have a clear reference to plant nutrition. Justified applications (0.5 page explanations) should be sent informally to the ISRR organizers and it should also include a list of the costs. When applying for the conference travel grant, a proof of the own contribution has to be enclosed as well (abstract, poster contribution, etc.). When a scholarship has been agreed upon, the funding will be provided after the conference shortly after all respective billing documents have been submitted. Also after successful completion of the stay, a short report of about ½ page on the research subject and, if desired, a short comment on the conference experience should be supplied. This may be published on the DGP website. Funded grantees are expected to be member of the DGP or apply for their membership at least when the positive decision about the grant has been communicated.
