Graduate Scholarship

    Higher-education graduates of outstanding academic merit who plan to complete a doctoral programme or carry out an artistic development project at a higher education institution in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania are welcome to apply. The PhD scholarships are awarded to graduates on the basis of excellent academic achievements who have been admitted to a doctoral programme and are mentored by a PhD advisor at a higher education institution of the Federal Land. The Caspar-David-Friedrich scholarships aim at sponsoring artists who wish to carry out an artistic development project. Applications are called for and awarded by the single higher education institutions. Candidates should therefore directly contact the institution of their choice. The sponsorship amount is of EUR 1,100 for junior researchers and EUR 1,000 for artists; if necessary, scholars will receive a child allowance.
