Grant - Frauen aufs Podium!

Women to the Stage!

Increasing the visibility of female researchers at lecture series, summer schools, conferences and symposia


“Women to the stage!” is an initiative of the Central Office for Gender Equality, Diversity and Family of the Faculty of Arts and Humanity of Kiel University.
Despite an increase of women in academia, female researchers are underrepresented in scientific programs of conferences and open talks. With this initiative the office for Gender Equality provides a budget to enhance the visibility of female researchers and their participation in scientific events and conference programs.

The 12th IMPR organizing committee successfully applied for the FaP budget and aims to use it to refund registration fees for a selection of IPS female participants presenting a contribution (oral presentation or poster) during the conference.

All female presenters can apply, however priority will be given to students, including PhD students, and participants from low-income countries (B category as defined in the application).

Application form - Frauen aufs Podium!

Among equal applicants, i.e. from the same group of students/non-students B-category country/non-students A-category country, the selection will be based on:
(1) the absence of own funding as declared in the application
(2) the quality of the abstract submitted.

Please submit your application at for the grant Women to the stage! before August 30, 2021.

The registration fee will be refunded after the conference to the bank account of the grant holders from which the registration was paid.
