Get-to-know stipend for PhD applicants

Professors of the University of Münster can apply for their international PhD applicants for a Get-To-Know Stipend and invite them to a two-week Application Conference in Münster. Both parties are thus given the opportunity to assess a future PhD project at the University of Münster, as well as further intensify their already existing contact.

  • Travel and subsistence allowances set by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD); travel allowance depends on the country of origin, subsistence allowance in the amount of 500 Euros (250 Euros per week).

We have been receiving a large number of applications, far higher than the number of stipends available. We would like to ask you for your understanding that we are not able to consider all applications for funding, and that therefore there is no unconditional entitlement to the award of a stipend.
