Doctoral fellowshipsWhere can I apply for a fellowship?

Landesgraduiertenförderung (LGF)

The Graduate Academy awards individual doctoral fellowships through the Baden-Württemberg Landesgraduiertenförderung Program and regularly supports research training groups with fellowships funded through the LGF program.

Funding organizations

There are many private funding organizations in Germany that offer doctoral fellowships or other funding for doctoral projects, often with a subject-based focus. The funding database of the Bundesverand Deutscher Stiftungen offers a wide range of entries.

The Begabtenförderungswerke are funding organizations supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research that provide fellowships to students and young researchers. Doctoral candidates in all subject areas can apply to these organizations for funding.
