Initial funding for PhDs

To provide initial funding for female graduates wishing to pursue a PhD, Paderborn University has set up a staff appropriations pool. This helps the best female graduates in a given graduation year fund their PhD through an academic staff position for a period of up to one year. Students who receive this funding have until the end of this one-year period to secure further funding (scholarship, application for a research project). 

Information is available at: Directive on the allocation of funding within the framework of the Equality Concept – Grant Line 1: Provision of an academic staff position/staff appropriations pool for female graduates
