- History, Language & Culture 
- The interdisciplinary field "Image and Imagery" 
- State, Economy and Society 
- The interdisciplinary field "International Relations" 
- Medicine and the Natural Sciences

The award amount is unspecified. Financial resources can be applied for to cover 
- travel expenses (rail travel 2nd class, air travel economy class), broken down according to speakers, 
- costs of accommodation and 
- meal costs for active participants/speakers and 
- to a limited extent, generally up to €500, resources to defray incidental conference costs (printing of flyers and posters, conference support by student helpers or assistants, etc.).

Applications can generally only be accepted if they come from a university or a non-profit research institution. Applicants must have a doctoral degree.

Congresses or larger conferences or sections within the framework of symposiums, annual conferences, etc., or purely doctoral workshops or summer schools cannot be supported.
