On January 18th, 2018, Einstein Foundation Berlin has honored three outstanding doctoral programmes at Freie Universität Berlin. The prize marks Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies, the Graduate School of North American Studies as well as Berlin Mathematical School as particularly successful and effective doctoral programs. Moreover, the label ‘Einstein Doctoral Programme’ is supposed to render visible the quality of structural doctoral studies in Berlin internationally. In addition, the prize money will enable the graduate schools to provide more funding for their junior researchers and to develop their internal structure further. Einstein Foundation Berlin especially lauds the thematic specialization of Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies and its graduates’ international networks, highlights the Graduate School of North American Studies’ thorough interdisciplinarity, internationality and unusually high success rate, and praises Berlin Mathematical School’s noteworthy funding and support service as well as their long-term integration of international first-rank researchers.
