Read our FAQ

Is it possible to apply for a grant for more than one project at a time?

Unfortunately, applicants aren’t allowed to send multiple applications. Each applicant can submit only one application in one category.

Can I apply for a grant that covers only part of my total project funding?

We are more than happy to be part of co-funded projects. All research funding received from elsewhere for the same research topic and all pending applications must be reported in the application, as well as any other noteworthy research funding received in recent years.

When will the grant period begin?

The earliest possible grant payment day is 1.1.2020 but you can also apply for postponement. If your project starts at the end of the year 2020, we recommend that you apply in our 2020 grant call.

Does the Foundation offer support for communication and interaction? Each applicant will fill out a communication and interaction plan for their project. The plan helps you to recognize your stakeholders and communication tools right at the beginning of the project. We recommend that you include communication expenses in your budget.
In the application budget, you’ll find a specific slot reserved for communication and interaction. In addition, grant receivers may use Nessling Nest for their project events and even streaming of video lectures.
