The DZL Academy is pleased to invite new applications to the DZL Academy Mobility Grant Program. All DZL Academy Fellows (Early Career Scientists) are eligible for application.

The mobility grant program aims to:

DZL Mobility Grants provide funding towards travel and subsistence expenses for short visits. Applicants may request up to 3.000 €. The mobility grant scheme is open to applications all year round.
