Friedrich Ebert Foundation: Scholarship for International Doctoral Students
Candidates are international students from all subjects (except the medical disciplines) who have been admitted to a doctoral programme at a German higher-education institution. Eligibility criteria include an excellent school and academic record and voluntary social and political involvement. Scholars are paid the amount of EUR 1,200 per month over a period of usually two and at most three years. The scholarship also entails comprehensive non-material support.
Anybody who has been unconditionally accepted for a doctorate at a German institution of higher education is invited to apply – except the medical disciplines.
- admission to a doctoral programme at a state or state-recognized higher-education institution in Germany
