Dissertation Completion Stipend

The Faculty of Social Science supports women and persons with parenting responsibilities in the final phase of writing their PhD thesis with a three-month stipend (700 Euro per month).

The application has to be addressed to the graduate commission (address of the deanery).

The criteria are:


  • raw version of dissertation thesis
  • statement of the advisor which indicates that the thesis will be graded with at least cum laude and that it will be finished in about three month.


There is no legal entitlement.
