The Research Unit Historical Cultural Sciences promotes thematically appropriate projects at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz with regard to organisation and finances. Primarily projects serving the thematic further development and the expansion of the Research Unit are promoted, for instance through the development of integrated projects and the preparation of application for outside funding. In addition, there are funds available for conferences and individual projects as well as in the field of the promotion of postdoctoral studies. Applications for funding must show a clear historical-cultural sciences reference and a distinctly theoretical-methodological foundation.

Further information on financial and organizational assistance and on the eligibility criteria thereof, is available from the office or here (in German).
