Schol­ar­ships and Ph.D.-Pos­i­tions
at the Friedrich Schle­gel Gradu­ate School of
Lit­er­ary Stud­ies

Dur­a­tion from 9 month to 4 years

Work­ing field:

For 2019, the Gradu­ate School offers the fol­low­ing grants
  • up to 6 pro­ject schol­ar­ships for the dur­a­tion of 9 months
  • up to 6 pos­i­tions for the dur­a­tion of three to four years for gradu­ate stu­dents work­ing on their Ph.D.-thesis
  • 2 DAAD grants for inter­na­tional stu­dents of Ger­man lit­er­at­ure and cul­ture for the dur­a­tion of three to four years

What we of­fer:

Pro­ject grants sup­port gradu­ates with a Mas­ter’s degree in devel­op­ing a dis­ser­ta­tion pro­ject in the form of an exposé with the goal of acquir­ing external dis­ser­ta­tion fund­ing, e.g. from other found­a­tions. The grants start in June 2019, and applic­ants are required to have sub­mit­ted their mas­ter’s thesis by that time. We spe­cific­ally encour­age inter­na­tional stu­dents to apply.

The Doc­toral Stud­ies Pro­gramme begins Octo­ber 1, 2019. The pos­i­tions for doc­toral stu­dents include a travel budget. There are spe­cial funds that Ph.D. can­did­ates can apply for in order to organ­ize work­shops and sim­ilar events . For a suc­cess­ful applic­a­tion, proof of fin­an­cial sup­port through a grant or a research assist­ant pos­i­tion is required (and must be sub­mit­ted by Septem­ber 2019).

The DAAD grants we offer are part of the Gradu­ate School Schol­ar­ship Pro­gramme (GSSP) and are dir­ec­ted at inter­na­tional Ger­man­ists who either do not cur­rently live in Ger­many, or came to Ger­many no earlier than 2018. After hav­ing under­gone the selec­tion pro­cess, can­did­ates will also have to sub­mit their applic­a­tions through the DAAD portal; the final decision lies with the fund­ing agency.

How to ap­ply:

The applic­a­tion dead­line is Decem­ber 16, 2018 at 8:00 PM CET.
The online portal for applic­a­tions will be open as of Novem­ber 05, 2018.

The work­ing lan­guage of the Friedrich Schle­gel Gradu­ate School is pre­dom­in­antly Ger­man. More inform­a­tion and details regard­ing the online applic­a­tion can be found here:
