Programme Description

Early-career scientists from all countries of origin and any subject carrying out further research work into the field of environmental protection at a higher-education institution in Germany are invited to apply for one of the 60 doctoral scholarships awarded each year. The programme's aim is to support young academics and build an interdisciplinary network of experts on the environment. To this end, the scholarships help finance doctoral theses which clearly address topical environmental issues and contribute to developing viable and sustainable solutions in this field. The concept of building support networks promotes active cooperation between the DBU and its alumni.

The scholarship amount is 1,500 EUR per month which are granted over a maximum period of 3 years. Additional benefits include a monthly lump sum of 210 EUR for material costs. Further contributions to material expenses are paid in exceptional cases, and fellows with children are granted additional support.
