Travel Grants

The Fritz and Helga Exner Foundation, which is affiliated with the SOG, supports young academics from Germany and Southeast Europe through scholarships for short-term research stays in the respective other region. Funding is provided for research projects primarily with a historical or contemporary-historical focus.

Documents to be submitted for application

  • Detailed letter of motivation, explanation and objective of the research project in German (state of research, methodology, motivation for the research trip).
  • Exact details of the destination and planned period of the research trip.
  • Support letter of the supervisor (professor or head of institute). In the case of young researchers from Southeast Europe, a contact person at a German university or research institute is desirable.
  • Curriculum vitae with information on the previous degree, completed research projects, language skills and, if applicable, available publications.

Applications for travel grants will no longer be accepted in 2023.
