Scholarships for doctoral students

Are you looking for funding to realise your doctoral project? Do your previous study and examination achievements demonstrate a special ability with regard to academic work? Is your work making a significant contribution to research?
Then become a doctoral scholarship holder of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom!
We support around 150 doctoral students from all disciplines annually who are working on a convincing and innovative research project and have been admitted to a doctoral programme at a university.

Unfortunately, we cannot fund the following:

  • Doctorates in human medicine and dentistry
  • Postdoctoral programmes
  • Postgraduate courses
  • Doctorates during the final phase
  • Projects (printing subsidies, travel subsidies, etc.).

Persons with a law degree can only apply for a doctoral scholarship if they have already completed their postgraduate traineeship (law, teaching, medicine) or will only start it after their doctorate. Unfortunately, the doctorate may not be interrupted by a postgraduate traineeship.
