Guides and Advice on External Funding

Maybe you’ve only just started your research at the University of Mannheim, or maybe you’ve submitted several grant applications already. No matter which stage of the process you are at, you may have questions on applying for funding.

Get Advice Early On

Once you have come up with your project idea, it may take up to twelve months for you to get a grant. If you want to apply for internal start-up funding, contact Division I - Controlling and Quality Management, Research Services as early as possible.

Not all sponsors are the same. Every organization has its own funding program with specific conditions that your research project has to fulfill to be awarded a grant. The team in Division I - Controlling and Quality Management, Research Services can explain which organizations and which formats are most relevant for your project.

The Legal Services team will be happy to provide you with advice on all matters relating to the search for a funding authority and the application process.
