RUB Research School


Research School awards a total budget of 5,000 Euro to Visiting International Professors to support their repeated visits to Ruhr-Universität. This travel grant is intended to cover travel and accommodation costs of the visiting scholar.

Please note that the VIP grant can be combined with other funding sources from our Research Around the World portfolio to include more researchers from all career levels.


Pospective Visiting International Professors are established researchers that work at international research institutions.

They are nominated by one (or more) RUB supervisors. It is essential that doctoral researchers from the nominating research group, chair or institute express their support through accompanying letters of recommendation illustrating the benefit of the VIPs visits for their research projects and international network.
