GAUSS emergency scholarship and family fund


Every student is eligible to apply for a GAUSS emergency scholarship as long as this would help to finalize the doctoral research. An emergency scholarship can be granted for up to three months and can be extended under exceptional circumstances.

All details about our emergency support and the application process are available on the GAUSS webpage. Here you will also find information on advice & counseling services with the topics Critical Situations during PhD, Discrimination, or Mental Health.

In addition to the emergency support we offer a GAUSS family fund. Please have a look at the corresponding webpage.

Please note that our financial resources are limited and we cannot approve all funding requests. However, please do not hesitate to contact us in any case. Applications are considered all year round. You are also welcome to get in touch with us before submitting an application. We will do our best to support you during this difficult time or assist you in finding alternative financing possibilities.
