Thanks to these resources we can individually support three extraordinarily qualified international PhD students can be supported individually during the summer semester 2013.

The aim is to integrate excellent international doctoral candidates or postdocs into the international activities of their respective supervisor in the department.

These scholarships reward the active tutoring of the PhD-students. Supportive tasks, such as mentoring and assisting, should contribute to the international exchange.

The scholarships are awarded as scholarships by the Office of International Affairs of the LMU.

The funding is limited up to six months at the most. The maximum amount of € 400.00 per month goes in line with the hourly rate for graduate assistants.

Selection criteria are the financial need and economic circumstances of the scholar as well as excellent academic performance. The supervisor should evaluate the candidate’s suitability for this scholarship.
