Promotion of Doctoral Students at the Faculty of Humanities

The promotion of outstanding early-stage researchers has an important role at the Faculty of Humanities.

Doctoral students are currently promoted by the following means:

  • GEWI Prize: As part of the GEWI Prize for the best theses, three doctoral programme graduates of the Faculty of Humanities are honoured each year; the recipient of the main prize is also given the opportunity to publish own work. Further information about this programme can be found here (only in German).
  • Project assistants without a doctorate“: Since October 2014, doctoral students are encouraged to complete their doctoral thesis in the course of several years of employment as “project assistants without a doctorate”. During this period, they also provide support to master’s degree students as mentors. More info (only in German)

The Faculty of Humanities advertised scholarships for doctoral students from 2007 to 2013. During this period, more than 60 scholarships were awarded. A list of graduates who completed their doctoral programme as part of the scholarship programme is available here (only in German). No doctoral scholarships are currently available.
