Scholarships and funding options
Acceptance as doctoral candidate at OvGU does NOT include a staff position or financial support. Candidates are obliged to organise funding themselves. The Faculty of Humanities, Social Science & Education provides information on funding options.
For funding options for international students, please contact the university's international office.
Information on tuition fees are available at https://www.uni-magdeburg.de/gebuehren.html [in German only]
Some of the biggest donors of PhD scholarships in Germany are the 13 “Begabtenförderungswerke” which choose their scholarship holders according to a set political, religious or economic agenda. If you are planning to apply for these programs it is therefore crucial to research their respective agendas.
