The Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology promotes young researchers in the humanities and social sciences and the further internationalisation of research at the faculty by means of a specially designed programme. The aim is to support young researchers (doctoral students, postdocs, associate professors), for example through active participation in an international scientific congress. The subsidy consists of the participation in the resulting travel and subsistence costs, including the congress fee of up to 100 percent.
