Female early PhD students
Acquiring a PhD scholarship from large German foundations can be a challenge for many young academics. Statistics show that female scholars apply less often for scholarships, due to a lack of information and structural support. This workshop equips participants with knowledge about the biggest foundations, including Rosa Luxemburg, Heinrich Böll, Studienstiftung, and others. We will discuss all aspects of the application process and find strategies for successful applications.
