LSM Travel Fund

LSM-students can apply for funding of e. g. conference participation or learning methods in foreign labs. 

For reimbursement the following things are needed:

  • Copy of LMU travel permit (only for LMU employees)
  • Confirmation of participation (e.g. conference, methods course, etc.)
  • Tickets (original ones or electronic tickets and proof of payment)
  • Original receipts and proof of payment (e. g. registration fee, accommodation)
  • Bank details

IMPORTANT for all LMU employees:

Reimbursement of travel expenses are ONLY possible by filling in the LMU form "Antrag auf Reisekostenerstattung"!
The LSM does not cover daily allowance (Tagegeld)

You have to fill in one form for each account/budget the costs will be reimbursed from. For example, if you receive travel expenses from LSM and accommodation/conference fees are paid for by your research group, you have to fill in two seperate forms. One for the LSM (travel expenses) and one for your research group (accommodation/conference fees).

Each form should include all expenses, independantly on which funding or grant they will be paid from. You must specify which costs are paid by which budget (your research group, LSM, etc.) and each form must be signed.

The LSM will require the filled in form together with all receipts and the copy of your LMU travel permit to reimburse the approved costs. The other form must be handed in to the administration of your research group. The settlement is checked by the LMU accounting center. When approved the expenses are reimbursed from the appropriate budgets, accordingly. Please be aware that this procedure can take some time, and it is not possible to accelerate it.


Please send in requests to Students will be informed about LSM decision within a few days.
