Who can Apply, How and When

Application procedures for the academic year 2019-2020 will open in March!

Available PhD Positions and Scholarships

For the academic year 2019/2020 a total of eight scholarships for full-time PhD students are available:

Candidates are asked to specify their interest in applying for one of the different types of scholarships. For the position in EDLE both Economics and Law backgrounds are welcome; the statement of purposes should include a short research project and information on the candidates’ specific skills and experience that makes them comparably well suited for the position.

Each scholarship amounts to € 15.343,28 gross per year (approx. € 13.500,00 net) for four years and is paid on a monthly basis. This amount is increased by 30% during visits abroad of no less than 1 month and no more than 18 months. The full-time scholarships will be assigned to the best applicants on a competitive basis. Up to 1 self-financed PhD students positions are also available (the amount of the yearly full tuition fees to be paid by candidates is € 157,64 for each year).

All admitted students will also have an endowment in research funds for activities during their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year (around € 1.535 per year).

Further financial support takes the form of teaching assistantships with official calls from the University, and research assistantships (usually coming from professors’ own research funds).
