Beyond Borders Scholarships for Doctoral Researchers Worldwide Now Open for Applications
Programme supports doctoral researchers in the social sciences and humanities whose research addresses questions surrounding borders and boundaries.
The Beyond Borders Doctoral Scholarship Programme supports international junior researchers in the social sciences and humanities whose research addresses questions surrounding borders and boundaries in past and present times. This may include political, social, virtual, intellectual and cultural borders and may include related topics such as issues of migration, security, trade, or global education.
The programme particularly promotes interdisciplinary exchange in the social sciences and humanities.
Both empirical research based on extensive fieldwork and projects centred on theoretical reflection are eligible for support. Innovative and challenging research questions as well as comparative approaches will be considered.
The programme offers three types of scholarships:
- Start Up Scholarships for advanced Master’s students and PhD students in an early stage of project formulation.
- PhD Scholarships for doctoral students enrolled in PhD programmes or admitted to an individual PhD scheme.
- Dissertation Completion Scholarships for advanced doctoral students in the writing-up phase of their degree.
For the 2022 call, the thematic focus is on the topic Borders, Migration and Knowledge.
