Project applications can be submitted to the Central Study Quality Fund Commission (KfS) until 10 November 2017. There are still funds in the innovation pool for the summer semester.

Applications for projects with a clearly limited duration can be submitted to the Quality management until 10 November 2017. The next meeting of the KfS will be held on 22 November 2017.

For applications, please use the application form (doc) and take note of the guideline for granting study quality funds ("Richtlinie zur Gewährung von Studienqualitätsmitteln"). Only projects that are cross-departmental 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.


Information from the Lower Saxon Ministry of Science and Culture (MWK):

Please submit this application form (doc in German only) for purchases and measures financed by study quality funds to the quality management (Dr. Bergt).
