Research stipend for PhD students

You wish to spend a part of your PhD study outside Germany or take part in international conferences and are looking for funding? "IP@WWU - International PhD Study at the WWU" project allows WWU Münster to support your stay abroad financially for up to 6 weeks or 5 days. Whatever the stage of PhD study you are in, we look forward to receiving your application!

Questions about your research stay abroad? Linda Dieks will be happy to answer them.


  • Phase II (11/2017 - 06/2019): Travel and subsistence allowances set by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD); the amount depends on the destination country and the length of stay.

We have been receiving a large number of applications, far higher than the number of stipends available. We would like to ask you for your understanding that we are not able to consider all applications for funding, and that therefore there is no unconditional entitlement to the award of a stipend.

Application / Required forms
