Author: Daniel Többens - Date: 3. November 2022

The German Crystallographic Society (DGK) issues travel grants for young scientists with student status participating at the 26th Congress and General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr 26) in Melbourne, Australia, taking place from 22nd to 29th of August 2023. Up to 5 grants of 500 € each will be given to graduate or postgraduate students of a field related to crystallography at a German university or scientific institution.

Please send your application (electronic form, German or English) not later than the 15th of January 2023 to the chair of the DGK, Prof. Dr. Thomas Schleid (E-Mail:

Your application should include:
• a cover letter with motivation (one page maximum)
• a short curriculum vitae (CV)
• a proof of student status
• a supporting statement (letter) of a professor or a senior scientist at a university or a public research institution

Grants will be issued subject to the quality of application, an acceptance of the conference contribution, and the available funds, but a membership in the DGK is not a requirement. For legal reasons, it is not possible for us to award travel grants to recipients outside of Germany.

Applicants will be informed, whether or not they have been granted a stipendium until 1st of February 2023. Payout of the stipendium occurs only under the condition that the recipient actually participates in the IUCr 26 conference on-site. It is expected that the grantees submit a report for publication in the organs of the DGK.

Information about the IUCr 26 can be found at

Best wishes and regards
Prof. Dr. Thomas Schleid, Chair of the DGK
