Network for the promotion of Young scientists

Funding lines for PhD students

The support of PhD students at the TUK is a major concern for the TU Nachwuchsring. In addition to further education courses, we offer financial support as well. On this page you will find information on all funding lines that address PhD students.


Mobility funding

PhD students registered at the TUK can apply for financial support from the TU Nachwuchsring for participation in external conferences and external research stays. If approved, the Nachwuchsring will cover a part of the travel costs and participation fees (maximum 80% of the costs). The mobility funding is advertised several times a year.

Further education

To promote interdisciplinary qualifications, the TU-Nachwuchsring offers doctoral students from all TUK departments a wide range of further education opportunities. These include both online and face-to-face seminars as well as e-learning courses  that are available all year round.

In addition to the offers of the Nachwuchsring you can find a selection of courses offered by other TUK education providers  and by TUK's affiliated institutes which address PhD students as well.


Project funding

The purpose of project funding is to support projects that are not covered by other funding lines and serve to promote young scientists at the TUK. This includes, for example, doctoral symposia organized by members of the TU Kaiserslautern.

In cooperation with the Self Study Centre of the TUK, we offer Face-to-Face-Coaching as well as collegial case consulting in small groups.
