Financial Aid

Arrange for financial support for the entire period of your doctoral programme (three to five years). Unfortunately, the Universität zu Lübeck has no funds to offer fellowships or loans to finance doctoral studies. However, there may be an opportunity to work as a post-doc/staff member at the institute where you are doing your research. Your advisor should be able to guide you on this.

For details on sponsors of fellowships and financial aid through DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) or other foundations and organisations, please look

DAAD will advise you on the opening to apply for a fellowship, including the requirements and deadlines.

Please organise financial support before applying for a doctoral programme at our Universität zu Lübeck.
