Female Scientist Career Fund (FSCF)

Within the iDiv funds, money has been allocated by the DFG to specifically promote the careers of female scientists. We want to support especially young women who want to stay in academia or just started as a group leader. Thus, doctoral researchers (PhD students), post-docs or young professors are encouraged to apply that are at iDiv or working in iDiv member groups.All female scientists within iDiv can apply for support irrespective of whom pays their salary.

The prime aim of the FSCF should be to promote the careers of female scientist by increasing their scientific network and visibility in their field of research. It will not be enough to just give money to female scientist to attend a conference: many female scientists are attending conferences these days, and support for travel and conferences is relatively easy to obtain for young scientists.However, due to various factors, they are hardly visible (or audible).

This ‘invisibility’ inhibits the progression of female scientists in the scientific community.
