Funding of freestanding courses
1 September 2023 is the deadline for submitting an application for funding from KPK for the spring semester 2024. If the course is also planned for the autumn semester 2024, we would like you to apply for both semesters at the same time.
This type of application only refers to courses that are not part of a doctoral programme or are to be wholly financed in another way, see Applying for funding of freestanding courses.
The same date applies to application for funding of so called additional costs when arranging courses in international collaborations.
Funding of courses within doctoral programmes
Contact a doctoral programme (or several) well in advance to apply for having the course included in the programme.
Course catalogue and application period
The course catalogue is open annually for application during the approximate periods: 15 April - 15 May (for autumn semester) and 15 October - 15 November (for spring semester) - subject to a different start/end date depending upon the day of the week.
The application period for the course catalogue for the spring semester 2024 will run from 16 October to 15 November 2023.
Funding of doctoral education activities
Application for doctoral activities other than courses can be submitted throughout the year, but well in advance of the activity. Read more about applying for this kind of funding. Please see Applying for funding of doctoral education activities for more information.
