Measures to Increase the Mobility of Doctoral Students - Scholarships

Travel scholarships for

  • Master students
    (For foreign students who wish to complete an internship of up to three months at the LUH).
  • Doctoral candidates from abroad
    (Get to know each other up to 1 month)
  • Doctoral candidates (
    Research stays of up to 3 months, LUH doctoral students can go abroad and foreign doctoral students can come to LUH.)

Applications for Travel Scholarships

Applications can be sent directly by e-mail to the QUEST-LFS office.

Incl. a short reason for the selection of the candidate - approx. half page - details see below.

Criteria for scholarship applications

One of the most important selection criteria is the applicant's convincing academic qualification. This should be documented by:

  • The academic achievements in relation to the duration of study.
  • Scientific publications, if applicable.

Further selection criteria apply to applications with the aim of carrying out a concrete research project:

  • Quality of the technical presentation of the project and of the preliminary work.
  • Embedding of the project in the overall doctoral project (in terms of content and time).
  • Suitability of the target institution
    (Reasons for the stay abroad and the choice of the target university).
