Support for research and education, especially in cases where public funding is not (yet) possible
The "Unibund" is a non profit organization in support of the University of Würzburg.
It manages various endowments and supports diverse activities with up to 10.000 Euros -usually much less- form the revenues. (In addition, it can fund one large scale project per year of ~40-50 K €, which is however unlikely to be accessible for doctoral students.)
