grants.at includes all grants, scholarships and research funding known to us – and relevant for Austria – on the institutional, municipal, provincial, federal, EU and international level and also those of private providers of funding (e.g. foundations, companies).
Grants provided by the higher education institutions can only partly be found in grants.at; they appear at the end of the results list. Detailed information about these is available from the relevant offices of the Austrian and foreign universities (e.g. International Office, Research Services).
Yes, please choose the funding organisation of your choice at the end of the entry page of grants.at.
At grants.at you can find all grant options we know of. This, however, does not mean that there are no others. In any case you should also enquire at your university / university of applied sciences or the university of your choice in another country. For studies / research abroad the first point of contact are the foreign diplomatic representations in Austria.
In some cases, however, no grants are available – which is often the case for private educational institutions.
Future doctoral candidates and researchers can find fellowships and jobs in the Job database of Euraxess - Researchers in Motion. Other grants databases can be found here.
