Applications for projects for the next KfS meeting can be submitted to the Quality Management until 6th November 2019. The date for the next meeting of the KfS is Wednesday, the 20th November 2019.
For applications, please use the application form (by downloading it in order to fill in the application form directly on your computer) and read the guideline on the granting of study quality funds (Richtlinie zur Gewährung von Studienqualitätsmitteln). Only interdisciplinary projects are eligible for funding.

What are study quality funds (Studienqualitätsmittel)?
Simultaneously with the abolition of tuition fees, the study quality funds were introduced in the winter semester 2014/15 (§ 14 of the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act). The contributions will be used to improve the quality of teaching and study conditions.
The use of the funds is decided by the Central Study Quality Fund Commission (central funds) and the study commissions (decentral funds) in agreement with the Presidium.
