The Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Art invite applications for the Fellowships for Individual Doctoral Training funded open to applicants who have successfully completed a university degree (Masters level or equivalent) and admitted as doctoral candidate in the appropriate faculty at the University of Heidelberg for the 2018/2019 academic year.

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Art has indicated that the funding for the Landesgraduiertenförderung Programme will be significantly reduced in 2018. As they have not yet received the authoritative information necessary for their budget planning, they are not able to foresee at this time whether they will be able to award any new fellowships this year.

As soon as they receive more information about this year’s funding allocation for the programme, they will post it on the Graduate Academy website and notify other university offices.
