Doctoral Degree Scholarships

In its meeting on 16 June 2020, the Executive Board adopted the guidelines for awarding doctoral completion scholarships at Clausthal University of Technology (TUC 2020, page 32).

The aim of this funding programme, which is supported by the Equal Opportunities Office and the Graduate Academy, is to support young researchers whose completion of their doctorate has been delayed for family reasons or for reasons of particular hardship.

The TU Clausthal provides a bridging fund for this purpose.

If the completion of your doctorate has been delayed through no fault of your own for family reasons or for reasons of particular social hardship, and you have no other means of financing the completion of your doctorate, please contact us.

We will be happy to advise you on possible financial bridging options.

You will find further information in the guidelines for doctoral degree scholarships.
