Doctoral Fellowships

Doctoral candidates at the ZfL receive fellowships from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with funds from its research program budget. All dissertation projects correspond to the ZfL’s research areas in fields such as the history of science, literary studies, and cultural studies. The ZfL occasionally also hosts candidates that are funded by outside grants.

Announcements for doctoral scholarships are published in the News section.

Dissertation advisors

Several researchers at the ZfL are qualified to advise doctoral theses regardless of the candidate’s institutional or financial affiliation. Their academic rank allows them to serve as either primary advisors or committee members.
