Fellowships for Doctoral Students
These are open to doctoral researchers from Germany and abroad who have at least a Masters level degree in history, theology or another discipline which works historically. They must have been pursuing their doctorate for no more than three years at the time of taking up the scholarship, though exceptions may be made in exceptional circumstances. It is not permitted to apply for a scholarship for the same dissertation topic in subsequent years. As a research institution that is not part of a university, the Institute does not hold any examinations and does not award any academic qualifications. Dissertations are completed under the supervision of the scholarship holder’s supervisor at her/his home university.
Please note: Please note: The IEG advertises fellowships for doctoral students twice a year (in December and June). The application deadline for the next call for applications for a research stay in Mainz beginning March 2019 is 15 August 2018.
