Publication grants from the University

The University of Passau supports the publication of excellent theses by awarding publication grants, thus complying with the early career researchers' wish of presenting a solution that accommodates for the different publication conventions for doctoral and postdoctoral habilitation theses within the various fields and faculties.

Moreover, enrolled doctoral students of the University may apply for a subsidy towards printing costs under the Oskar-Karl-Forster scholarship (German) if they can prove that they cannot cover these costs without the subsidy.

The University Library also offers a publication grant (German) to staff and students of the University of Passau to reimburse the article processing charges of Open Access journals up to a limit of 2,000 euros, provided the funding criteria are met.
