External Award: Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology - Doctoral Fellowship

December 03, 2015

Every year, the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology (BGHS) invites doctoral researchers from other countries to work at the Graduate School for four months to promote international scientific and cultural exchange.

Visiting fellows have the opportunity to use their stay at the BGHS to work intensively on their dissertation, visit degree programme courses and build contacts to our scientific community. Fellows receive a computer work station for the duration of their stipend. The grant consists of a EUR 1,200 stipend per month. This amount will be supplemented by a child allowance if applicable. Upon application, travel costs can also be covered by the Graduate School. 

All international doctoral researchers may apply who are matriculated in a doctoral programme abroad and whose dissertation has a historical, sociological, social-anthropological or political science focus.

The application deadline is January 15, 2016.

Please see here for more information on the fellowship and how to apply.
