DAAD contact grants for international doctoral candidates
The University of Oldenburg aims to strengthen its international ties and to increase the number of international doctoral candidates. In line with this, scholarships financed by the Scholarship and Supervision Programme for International Doctoral Candidates of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD, so-called Contact Grants) will be awarded for stays of international doctoral candidates between 2019 and 2021 by the Graduate Academy and the International Student Office.
The supported doctoral candidates must be registered doctoral students at one of the partner universities of the University of Oldenburg (e.g. via Memorandum of Understanding; Student Exchange Agreement; agreement-based research cooperations) and need to be integrated into a research group. The duration of the stay should be between one and six months. The stay should take place in 2019.
Please note: in addition to the doctoral grant, successful applicants may also earn a max. salary of 450 EUR per month as supplementary income/ income from a part-time job. If other funding/financial support is already being received, then this must be certified with the respective documents (details on the grant provider, grant amount, pay slip). Already existing grants must be taken into account. Please contact usc7000 (firstname.lastname@example.org/rrfe) for more information.
International doctoral candidates may apply for these scholarships with the following documents:
- Application form
- A CV
- A supportive statement of the supervisor at the home university
- Proofs of further external fundings (e.g. scholarships, pay slips)
- A letter of the research group at the University of Oldenburg outlining the (planned) involvement of the international doctoral candidate in the group. To be specific, the scientific and practical involvement of the doctoral candidate in the group as well as an approximate schedule for the research stay should be described.
Application details for 2020 will be announced later in 2019.
The intended stay may, at the earliest, commence one month after the application deadline, the monthly grants for the stay amounts to 950 EUR. Applications should be sent as a single pdf-file to: email@example.com.
