PhD Scholarships in Cultural Studies

    They are granted for one year with the possibility of two extensions of one year each. Doctoral scholarships include a monthly stipend of € 1468. PhD candidates seeking an excellent research environment will find ideal working conditions and maximum support at the GCSC and will have access to all the advantages offered by the GCSC to its members.


    PhD candidates must have an M.A. or equivalent university degree with a grade well above average and in a field relevant to the dissertation. The degree should meet the international equivalence requirements. Please do not hesitate to contact the IPP-team for further information on the equivalence of your degree.
    If the dissertation is to be undertaken in a discipline other than that of your university degree, your qualifications need to fulfil the conditions of equivalence as stated in the statutes for doctoral programmes at JLU. Please note that as of October 2007, membership in the IPP requires enrolment at JLU for the entire period of your doctoral studies (enrolment fee: approximately €230 per semester).
