Exposé Scholarship

The Graduate Academy financially supports graduates in their process of planning a doctorate with funding to elaborate a detailed research concept for a PhD project. With a scholarship of 1,000 € per month (for up to six months) doctoral students are given the opportunity to carry out first research and to work out a dissertation proposal. The aim of this six-month scholarship is to secure further funding for the doctoral thesis.

Graduates and students on the verge of completing their degrees who are willing to earn a doctorate at Leibniz Universität Hannover can apply for this funding. Each application must include a letter of commitment from a university professor who is willing to supervise the doctoral thesis of the candidate and who provides the necessary working conditions.

The selection criteria will include the academic qualification for earning a doctorate as well as the innovation potential and the general practicability of the PhD project.

Applications for the Exposé Scholarship are possible biannual at the end of each semester. The deadlines for applications are 31 March and 30 September, respectively. Within 6-8 weeks subject-specific scientists evaluate the applications and the executive committee of the Graduate Academy decides upon approval/rejection of applications.

Funding is retroactively possible to 1 April (application deadline 31 March) or to 1 October (application deadline 30 September).

Within six weeks after the funding has expired, the applicant is required to present a report. The report should address the results achieved during the funding period and outline the next steps on the way to a doctorate.
