One year scholarships: call for application for 2016/17

The Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Science and the Arts will sponsor scholarships for the academic year 2016/17. . The scholarships are meant to finance doctoral or postgraduate studies at Bavarian universities. One year scholarships can be extended twice for up to 3 years. The scholarship is paid out monthly (700 €) and amounts to 8.400 € per year. Students with at least one child receive 860 € per month, which amounts to 10.320 € per year. Candidates should send their documents to the address specified in the important advice.

The objective of the annual scholarship program is to support scientific cooperation and academic exchange between Bavaria and Central-, Eastern- and Southeastern Europe.

General advice

• Hand or send your application document in by the due date!

• You cannot count on an automatic extension only because you already received the scholarship for one year and your research project was conceived for several years. We need to be able to see a progression in your work. Show us tangible provisional results that illustrate that you are advancing your project and will successfully bring it to a close.

• Make sure you take care of the two expert opinions early on! Note that professors are hard to get a hold of during the extra-curricular periods. (“Stipendien”)
