Graduate School Scholarship Programme (GSSP)

Absolventen werfen Hüte in die Luft

In a competitive process, internationally oriented structured doctoral programmes are identified which receive a DAAD funding commitment for up to four DAAD-funded doctoral scholarships (two doctoral scholarships in each of two consecutive years) for foreign doctoral candidates.

Doctoral education in structured PhD programmes are an essential part of the qualification process of young academics in Europe and Germany. High quality standards regarding the selection and hosting of doctoral students, as well as an international research environment, create unique perspectives particularly for foreign applicants.
