Scholarships for Doctoral Candidates

Scholarships Awarded on the Basis of the Hamburg Promotion of Scientific and Artistic Talent Act

Hamburg University of Technology awards scholarships on the basis of the Hamburgisches Gesetz zur Förderung des wissenschaftlichen und künstlerischen Nachwuchses (HmbNFG), to give it its German name. These scholarships amount to 1,200 € per month and are awarded to especially qualified doctoral candidates. Work on a dissertation qualifies for financial support in special measure, if the project seems likely to make a major contribution towards research.

Details are send to all institutes at TUHH in regular intervals and published on this site.

Applicants can find out more by reading the Act, the Regulations  (both in German) and the Instructions carefully. Please note that only the German version, which is also available, is legally valid.

If you have any questions, please contact the
Graduate Academy for Technology and Innovation
