Research Grants Programme Available for International Students in Germany and Taiwan

Deadline: 15-Feb-23

A request for ideas for exceptional collaborative research projects in all scientific domains is being released by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC, previously the Ministry of Science and Technology MOST).

This program intends to unite competitive and pertinent researchers from Taiwan and Germany to plan and execute joint research initiatives. The NSTC must be contacted for monies needed by the Taiwanese side, and the DFG must be contacted for money needed by the German side. The integrated nature of proposed projects is given particular consideration, from the idea through the work plan. Only projects that demonstrate a strong partnership between the German and Taiwanese partners and for which the projected research impact is clearly specified are eligible for funding. Research funding for the chosen joint projects will be provided for up to three years.

  • Research grants enable individuals to conduct, at any time, research projects with clearly defined topics and durations, regardless of the subject.
  • The DFG Head Office staff will be happy to advise you, especially if your proposal does not seem to fit into the module system.
Funding Information
  • A total of €1,000 per funding year and applicant can be requested.
  • Duration: The maximum initial funding duration is three years. Subsequently, a renewal proposal may be submitted.
Eligibility Criteria
  • Applicants from Taiwan are required to fulfil all requirements for funding and follow the general regulations of NSTC.
  • Researchers in Germany, or those working at a German research institution abroad, who have completed their academic training (a doctorate as a rule) are eligible to apply for DFG research grants.
  • In general you are not eligible to submit a proposal if you work at an institution that is not non-profit or one that does not allow immediate publication of research findings in a generally accessible form.
  • Researchers who are employed at one of the institutes or member organisations of the Max Planck Society, Fraunhofer Society, Helmholtz Association or Leibniz Association, researchers working at a publicly funded institute associated with one of these organisations, and researchers working at international research facilities located in Germany should note the rules on the duty to cooperate.
