The Faculty of Medicine awards scholarships twice a year for students in the subject of medicine for a period of 6-12 months to carry out an experimental doctoral thesis. The aim of the funding is to create sufficient free space for the medical doctorate and thus enable high-quality research projects.
Applications can be submitted online up to and including 15 May and 15 November of each year. A counselling interview must be arranged before submitting the application. After the counselling interview you will receive the application documents.
