Doctoral Programs (DKs) at FWF 2011, Austria

Doctoral Programs form centres of education for highly qualified young scientists from the Austrian and international scientific community. The programme should support centres of excellence at Austrian research institutions and help ensure the continuity and impact of such centres. A Doctoral Program may only be established at a research institution that is entitled to award doctoral qualifications.
A Doctoral Program is a unit formed as a result of a joint undertaking by several scientists or scholars (at least 5, at most 20) whose research is of an internationally leading standard. Based on a clearly defined mid-term research programme (ideally transcending traditional borders between disciplines), these scientists should offer a structured educational programme to doctoral students. Doctoral Programs should primarily be established in close cooperation with existing large-scale research programmes (SFB or NFN).

Scholarship Application Deadline: May be submitted at any time, the deadline for submitting a concept is 2nd November 2011 for decision in 2012.
