Doctoral positions / Doctoral scholarships
Each year, Master's graduates with particularly good grades can apply with their doctoral supervising professors at Fachhochschule Dortmund for doctoral positions or doctoral scholarships.
Cooperative doctorates can be funded for a maximum of four or four and a half years with a 50 percent or 40 percent position as a research associate or alternatively with a scholarship.
The next application deadline is 1 October 2021.
International mobility is part of most doctoral projects and is an important element of qualification. Fachhochschule Dortmund offers two funding programs: a business travel grant for participation in international conferences and a travel grant for research stays of one to three months.
Conference travel grants
Financial support for parents pursuing doctoral studies
Funding for professional events
Doctoral candidates actively shape the program of the Graduate Center. “Research Seminars” on (interdisciplinary) topics related to theory and methods can be funded upon request. Additionally, there is funding available for conferences organized by doctoral students.
We will gladly provide information on external funding opportunities for your doctoral studies or on financing stays abroad. We also offer information events on doctoral scholarships on a regular basis.
