Short Term Grants for the year 2021

Short Term grants exclusively include the reimbursement of travel expenses between the hometown and Bayreuth as well as accommodation costs in Bayreuth. The costs will be refunded up to a maximum of 3,500 €. Up to five Short Term Grants are available to researchers regardless of their field of research.
International Excellence – Programme Goals
The Centre supports academic exchange across existing boundaries: between disciplines, between different cultures and countries, between established and younger researchers. Applicants are encouraged to learn about the University of Bayreuth’s focus areas and research strengths.
Experience Bayreuth – Collaboration with Local Host
We invite the Short Term Grantees to carry out their own research projects in cooperation with a local host at the UBT. Prior to submission of the application, applicants are required to identify a host in Bayreuth with whom they aim to carry out their research project. The local hosts provide their grantees with modern office and lab space and an up-to-date infrastructure. Applications are welcome from all disciplines, although exceptions apply.
We award the Short Term Grants to individuals from abroad with challenging and innovative research projects of top academic quality through a highly competitive, strictly merit-based selection process. The all-important selection criteria are the academic excellence of both the applicant and the cooperative project. For more information on the application and selection process (required documents, guidelines on eligibility, evaluation criteria, timeline and stages of the selection process) see Application Guidelines for Short Term Grants.
Please submit your complete application via our online form by November 1, 2020.
