Lindemann-Scholarship of the Dr. Heinz Lindemann Stiftung for Ph.D. Candidates of Technical or Natural Science related Fields

Every two years, the Dr. Heinz Lindemann Stiftung offers, in close cooperation with the Graduate Academy, a scholarship to a Ph.D. candidate of Leibniz University Hannover, who is performing his/her Ph.D. in a technical or natural science related field.

The scholarship is considered a supplement to any other additional source of income of the scholarship holder. It is supposed to give the scholarship holder the opportunity to dedicate herself/himself to the Ph.D. project without financial worries.

The scholarship is awarded every two years up from October. The next scholarship starts in October 2019. A commission consisting of representatives of the Dr. Heinz Lindemann Stiftung and of the Graduate Academy decides upon awarding the scholarship. The scholarship amounts to 400 Euro per months and is offered for a maximum duration of 24 months.

Applications have to be submitted by July 15, 2021.
