PhD Research Scholarship


The ATSAF Academy awards a scholarship of EUR 1500 per month for a period of three years with the possibility for a 12 month extension if the progress of the PhD project indicates that the PhD can be completed within these 12 months.

Research Grant

In addition to the scholarship, a research grant of up to EUR 25,000 may be requested, which will be paid to the supervising University to be used for research related to the PhD project.

Scientific Support Program

Scholars must be actively participating in the ATSAF Academy and enrolled in a structured PhD program at the supervising university. In order to receive the ATSAF Academy certificate of completion, scholars must complete following modules:

All modules should have the equivalent of 6 ECTS points. This represents an average total amount of work of 150 - 180 h, with 56 h of class attendance and 94 - 124 h of self-studying. The modules must be completed with a grade minimum or better than B- (75%).

We ask all sholars to become a member of ATSAF e.V.
