Giessen University's International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture

a three-year structured PhD-programme in the study of culture. With its
excellent research environment, a doctoral programme which is tailored to the
needs of PhD students and the intensive personal support it provides, the
Graduate Centre offers postgraduate students optimum conditions for their
PhD-projects and a custom-made preparation for the time thereafter, both with
regard to academic and non-academic careers.

PhD scholarships include a monthly stipend of approximately 1.000 Euros and are
offered for one year with the possibility of two extensions, each of a year.

Acceptance of a scholarship requires participation in the study programme and
the wide-ranging events offered by the GCSC, as well as active involvement in at
least one GCSC graduate research group. Scholarship holders must register as PhD
students at Justus Liebig University. There are no tuition fees for doctoral
students at JLU, except for an enrollment fee of approximately 200 Euros per
semester. Scholarship holders are expected to take up residency in or near Giessen.
The GCSC encourages applications from graduate students who have or expect to
obtain a first or upper second class honours MA -degree (or equivalent) in one
of the GCSC's academic subjects* or in the arts/humanities, cultural studies, or
