Dear Ms Hoigaard,

Thank you for contacting us.

With reference to your query, we would suggest to contact the German EURAXESS Services Centres.

Members of the European EURAXESS Services Network, these centres assist researchers in every step of their move, starting in their home country and continuing until they have settled in a new one. This free personalised service is to make researchers' life easier. Researchers will receive comprehensive, up-to-date information, as well as customised assistance on all matters relating to both their professional (i.e. funding) and daily life.

To contact them, please go to and click on Germany (section "Search for Services").

We hope this can help.

Best wishes, The EURAXESS Portal team

Julie and Beth suggestions

Hi Julie:

I'm enclosing a few search results. He'd need the money in six months, which doesn't give much time to go through the application process. My general suggestion is that he should talk to the School of Social Sciences and see whether they have any funding for such a project. Also, the Max Planck institutes may have some funding; I don't know exactly which ones he's referring to, so it's unclear to me how to search for that info. I'm hoping the search results below will also be helpful. He might want to combine several sources of funding, if that's possible. Also, Marge Brannon in Foundation Development might be able to search for some funding, as you suggest.

I hope this helps.


This one supports faculty-organized groups of students to go to Germany. I'm not sure exactly what that entails, or whether Doug's project would fit their specifications, but worth checking out. If it's not clear whether they'd support his project, he might want to contact the program officer. <>

Scholarships and Funding for Faculty <>

Group Study Visits <>

I don't know whether this program would support what I imagine will be a short visit. This is for international research collaborations between U.S. students and research organizations abroad, and I'm not sure whether this project would qualify. Finally, there's a February 15 deadline coming up, and the question would be whether the project could be reviewed in time for Doug's group to get the money, if they're eligible. <>

International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) <>

Western Europe (WE) <>

These two grants are for defense, security, and terrorism-related collaborations with NATO countries. Not sure if their project qualifies. <>

Collaborative Linkage Grants (CLG) <>

This one doesn't support supplements to travel costs or scholarships granted by another agency. But they might be interested in this project. They are especially interested in supporting young academics and international collaboration. <>

Hi Beth,

Do you have a suggestion to Doug White who sent this message to me? Is this something which Advancement is in charge of?

If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
