Contact scholarships

Contact scholarships can only be awarded to doctoral candidates of partner universities or foreign universities with which partnership agreements are implemented or are planned to strengthen international partnerships.

With these contact scholarships, German doctoral candidates also get the opportunity to stay at these partner universities or other universities abroad for study, training or research purposes.
Furthermore, contact scholarships fulfill important multiplier functions (knowledge transfer) for future students and PhDs through returning PhDs.

The scholarship can be awarded for 5 months (extension possible).



Please note the required application documents:

  • Request of the supervisor of the thesis (informal letter, stating the expected completion date of dissertation and the period of assistance required)
  • Applicant's CV
