Proposal - Review - Decision

The DFG does not provide any funding without a proposal; nor are proposals approved before they have passed through a multi-level review process. The "DFG Proposal Process" pages summarise information for applicants, reviewers and committee members and provides links to useful material on submitting a proposal and the DFG's procedures for processing it.

  • Interner LinkInformation for applicants
    The "Information for applicants" pages describe the steps you must take in order to apply for the correct funding for your project.

  • Interner LinkInformation for committee members
    A number of DFG committees whose members serve in a voluntary capacity play an important part in the decision-making process.

  • Interner LinkInformation for reviewers
    Reviewers are researchers who work for the DFG on a voluntary basis. Depending on the funding programme, they review funding proposals during meetings or in writing. A member of a review board is always present at the review panels. Written reviews are then assessed in the review boards.
