Financial Support - How does it work?

Every participant from abroad, i.e. not Garching or Munich, will receive financial support of 80€/day [if you stay for at least 10 working days].

You can choose between:

Option A: Honorarium + allowances

Option B: Reimbursement on receipts

How to calculate the total amount:

  • Count number of weekdays at the programme + days of the weekend(s) in between [at which you are staying in the Garching/Munich area].
  • Multiply number of days with 80€ = total amount.
  • In case you are arriving before your first day at MIAPP (+ 40€) or leave after your last day at MIAPP (+ 40€) please add the sum to the total amount.
  • In case you are eligible for family support you will receive 120€/day instead of 80€, and 60€ for an earlier arrival or later departure (instead of 40€). Allowances are as indicated below. Family support is granted on a case by case basis for participants that bring their minor children with them.

What is the difference between option A and B?

Option A is a mixture of honorarium and daily allowances. It therefore includes a taxable income. You will have to sign an honorarium contract and do not have to provide any receipts.

Option B is a mixture of refund on receipts and an allowance for meals and expenses. You have to provide original invoices (for travel, accommodation, public transportation). In case MIAPP does not cover an invoice completely, we will return the original after noting the amount covered by MIAPP.

Please make sure to have the invoices issued to your home address.
