German Studies Conference Funding

© DAAD

Faculty members and advanced students in the humanities, social sciences and related fields are invited to apply for co-funding to organize workshops, seminars and conferences that embrace the interdisciplinary and/or comparative study of the history, politics, economics, law, society, culture and the arts of Germany. Netzwerk Deutsch (formerly: StADaF = Ständige Arbeitsgruppe Deutsch als Fremdsprache / Standing Committee for German as a Foreign Language) funds are made available by the German Foreign Office to encourage distinguished scholarly contributions to a deeper understanding of contemporary Germany in the US and Canada.

What can be funded?

Grants can be made for specific projects only; they cannot be awarded as a form of institutional funding or be used for annual meetings of societies or solely to finance publications. Projects to be funded must be of limited duration, have a clearly defined goal, and, as a general rule, must be carried out within the applicable calendar year.

A minimum of 50% of project costs have to be contributed from other sources, including the university hosting the event. In-kind contributions, such as the provision of meeting space or equipment, may not be counted towards this requirement.

DAAD funding guidelines do not permit use of the contribution to cover transatlantic travel, whereas domestic travel, ground transportation, accommodation for active speakers and panelists, catering costs and honoraria of up to USD 500 for keynote speakers are chargeable expense categories.

As a German public donor agency, it is also firm and consistent DAAD policy not to fund office overhead or indirect costs at North American universities.

Any awards made will be subject to the ratification of the German federal budget for the same fiscal year.

A complete application consists of the items listed below:

  • A comprehensive project description, including a project rationale
  • Preliminary program and speaker list
  • Information on project publicity, outreach activities and target audience
  • Detailed budget, including all prospective funding sources

Important: All applications must be signed and submitted both via 1) regular mail (see address below) and 2) e-mail to thomanek@daad.de as a pdf-file.
In order for your application to be complete, you must hand in an electronic and a paper version of your application.
