The Berlin Graduate School of Ancient Studies (BerGSAS) is offering 4 Predoc-Scholarships at Freie Universität Berlin in the field of Classical Studies. Funding is available to doctoral researchers who have completed their Master's degree by the start of funding in April 2023 (the thesis must be evaluated and graded by January 31, 2023) and are planning to complete a doctorate at the Freie Universität Berlin, within BerGSAS.
The fund is available from 1 April 2023 onwards at the earliest for 6 months. An extension is not possible. The Predoc scholarship holders receive a scholarship of EUR 1,000 per month. At the beginning of the scholarship, admission to the doctoral programme and enrolment at the Freie Universität Berlin must be available. The purpose of the scholarship is to complete an exposé for a doctoral dissertation topic to be sent to potential scholarship providers within the 6-month funding period. It is expected that the dissertation will be pursued at the Freie Universität, within BerGSAS. The Predoc-Scholarship holders, who successfully apply for external doctoral funding, will receive a place at the BerGSAS and participate in the curriculum of our structured doctoral program.
