HowTo: Apply for Conference Funding

You want to attend a conference and are looking for funding? You should try the HSA Conference Fund:

Since the beginning of 2015, the HSA has realised a -small- Conference Fund for students. The fund is meant to offer a contribution to students who attended a Conference on behalf of Hertie or on their own. Funding will happen at the beginning of each semester for conferences that you are planning to attend. For the spring semester 2015, the deadline is April 10th. This deadline covers applications for  conferences that took place after February 8th 2015 or are scheduled to take place before August 31st 2015. Around April 15, you will be informed if, and how much, funding the HSA grants you. Once, you paid for the expenses, you can send the receipts/ proof of payment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and you will be reimbursed.

Please keep in mind that funding will not be more than €100,- per student and that the conference should be policy related.

Good to know: in case you spontaneously decide to attend a conference in June but you didn’t apply for funding before April 10, don’t worry! At the end of the semester, you will have another chance to apply for funding. However, the total fund will consist of the money that wasn’t granted or was not reimbursed in the end. Hence, the total amount of the fund will be lower.
