The FDP-affiliated Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is one of the twelve nation-wide associations for academically outstanding students. The Graduate Scholarship supports Doctoral German universities. The amount of the scholarship is € 1,050 plus a research allowance of 100 Euros per month. The scholarship will be paid for 12 months first and can be renewed to a maximum of three years.
The Foreign Graduate Scholarship is aimed at German and foreign doctoral students of all disciplines. Applications can only be submitted at the beginning of the promotion. The fields of Human medicine and dentistry and post-doctoral programs as well as graduate programs are not being sponsered. In order to obtain this sponsorship, outstanding examination performance must be demonstrated. At the same time, the scientific and social relevance of the dissertation topic is evaluated. In addition, the candidate must have demonstrated social commitment. This can have been demonstrated at the university (eg. Compartment shaft, university committees, political student organization), in a liberal party, in social institutions, associations or initiatives (eg. Culture, sport, social, municipal, human rights, international exchange, etc.). In addition, suitability of character should be given in terms of an understanding of liberal values.
