Summer School Grant

Application Deadline:  April 7, 2023 (Friday) for awards to be used in Academic Year 2022/2023.

All enrolled post-comprehensive doctoral students are eligible to apply for a grant to support attendance at a graduate Summer School of their choice. (Exceptionally, doctoral students whose comprehensive exam is scheduled to the fall after the completion of their first-year obligations may also receive the grant).  The Summer School should be of demonstrably high academic quality and fit the research topic of the attending student.

Eligible expenses are travel and accommodation costs, course fees (but applicants are encouraged to ask for a fee-waiver, if possible), and a limited (max 10 EUR/day) per diem allowance for meals (unless the fee covers meals in which case no separate per diem allowance can be given).

The grants will be distributed on a competitive basis, taking into account the
- academic performance of the student,
- the academic quality of the hosting school,
- the demonstrated relevance of the school to the student's research.

Depending on the number of applications, grants will be offered to cover all or part of the expenses. Decisions will be made by the Scholarship Advisory Committee. Students may apply up to 1,500 EUR.

Important: The Summer School Grant is a very competitive program so no incomplete or late applications can be accepted and reviewed by the Scholarship Advisory Committee.
