Fast Track doctoral scholarships

Starting October 1st, 2016 the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne offers Fast Track doctoral scholarships over a period of three years.
The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School serves the entire Faculty of Arts and Humanities and covers all qualification levels of academic training in the arts and humanities – from Master to postdoc. The Fast Track model allows students in their last semester of Master’s studies to immediately be accepted as doctoral students in the structured programme of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. Candidates admitted to the structured doctoral programme are supervised by a team of three researchers and study a curriculum that involves, among other things, participation in regular meetings of one of the six interdisciplinary graduate classes.
The Fast Track model addresses excellent graduates who are already able to present a viable proposal for a doctoral dissertation project directly after the completion of their degree and who are therefore able to be immediately accepted into the structured doctoral programme of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. The doctoral projects of the scholarship holders will be supervised by full professors at the University of Cologne. Applicants may contact potential supervisors in the course of application.
The Fast Track doctoral scholarship is a full scholarship at EUR 1.250 per month and is awarded for three years, starting October 1st, 2016. Please send your complete application documents by May 20, 2016 (application receipt).
