Scholarships for doctoral students that are being written at one of the universities in Berlin.

Pursuant to the Berlin state Act on the Promotion of Junior Achievement in Academic, Scientific and Artistic Fields (Gesetz zur Förderung des wissenschaftlichen und künstlerischen Nachwuchses), scholarships are awarded for doctoral students as well as for the completion of dissertations (in the final stages) that are being written at one of the universities in Berlin.

Conditions for Receipt of Aid

Applicants must be able to demonstrate performance that far exceeds the average, especially in their undergraduate degrees. There must be reason to expect that applicants’ academic projects will make a significant contribution to the body of research in the field. Applications must be accompanied by documentation of the student’s qualifications, a statement from his or her supervising professor, and a working plan that shows the reasons the student has chosen the particular topic, the status of preliminary work on the project, an outline of the research project, and a schedule for the implementation of the project. Applicants must not have already received earlier public funding for the same project.

Application Deadlines

There are two deadlines per year, one in April and one in November. The office will announce the exact deadlines (cutoff dates).
Successful applicants begin receiving funding on April 1 or July 1 of the year.
