Friedrich Naumann Foundation: Scholarship for Doctoral Students
Equal importance is placed on both material and non-material support: Scholarship, study cost- and foreign residence allowances, etc. are a means to ensure financial stability. But participating in education projects, getting involved in activities by other scholarship holders and contributing ideas to the Foundation’s work is what breathes life into non-material support.
The candidates’ academic records show a special talent for scientific work and outstanding promise for contributions to research. The scholarships are awarded independent of parental income and need not be repaid.
Not eligible for funding are
- doctoral theses in the fields of human medicine or dentistry
- post-doctoral programmes
- post-graduate courses
- doctoral theses in their final stages
- projects such as funding for printing costs, travel allowances, etc.
Law graduates are only eligible for application, if they have already completed their legal internship or if they start the internship after completion of their doctoral thesis. The doctoral programme may not be interrupted by a period of internship.
