Women’s Advancement Funds

Under Hesse travel expenses legislation, we usually grant staff and students funding of up to € 250 per person/year.

When allocating women’s advancement funds, the Women’s Advancement Funds Committee abides by the Guidelines for the Use of Women’s Advancement Funds (opens in new tab).

The reasons why the travel expenses for staff participation in conferences and meetings cannot be covered by the research group itself must be stated additionally. For those participating in ProProfessur, the registration fee will also be refunded. Students are not eligible to receive funding for any item that is normally part of their study programme.

Examples of measures funded include participation in events run by:

  • Mentoring Hessen
  • SciMento
  • Femtec
