what we promote

The "Female Professors for Lower Saxony" program aims to strengthen the position of universities in Lower Saxony in appointment negotiations with a view to attracting particularly qualified female professors in face of increasingly intense competition.

In addition to the co-funding, the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony and the Volkswagen Foundation are providing a total of 10 million euros from the zukunft.niedersachsen program for the "Female Professors for Lower Saxony" program. Universities in Lower Saxony that were successful in the federal and state government's Female Professors Program 2030 can apply for up to 100,000 euros in additional funding per year for a maximum of three years (i.e. up to one full-time position - TVL 13 - and up to 40,000 euros in material resources).
