Gutenberg Graduate School of the Humanities and Social Sciences – Call for Applications
Research Proposal Scholarships
for Prospective Doctoral Candidates in the Humanities and Social Sciences
Application deadline: January 15, 2021
Funding start: April 1, 2021
In an effort to attract highly qualified doctoral candidates in the humanities and social sciences to the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz and to provide financial support for the preparatory and early stages of their PhDs, the Gutenberg Graduate School of the Humanities and Social Sciences is launching a call for applications for new research proposal scholarships for summer semester 2021. The proposal scholarships are intended to help potential recipients complete a convincing research proposal within the six-month scholarship period, which provides the foundation for a successful PhD scholarship application or university position. In addition to the financial support, the scholarship also offers a substantial level of non-material support such as workshops on research proposal writing and PhD preparation, along with other advisory and skills development opportunities.
