Offers and Funding Opportunities

On the following pages you will find information on the mentoring programmes offered at Paderborn University for young female academics as well as on internal and external funding options for doctorates:

Peer Mentoring

As part of the "Insight!" peer mentoring programme, prospective female graduates talk to other female students about the prospect of a doctorate. This exchange is accompanied by a doctoral candidate who reports from her own experience, shares strategies for decision-making and provides information about the promotion of young researchers.

Mentoring Programme for Female Doctoral Candidates

The mentoring programme includes offers for different target groups that have been developed in accordance with the quality standards of Forum Mentoring e.V. The aim of the Paderborn mentoring programmes is to promote the career development of female students, doctoral candidates and female postdocs in studies and research.

Promotion of Doctorates/Research Funding

Paderborn University supports its academics with numerous offers and services, creating space for research. From the project idea to successful completion: We accompany you all the way.
