For the three-year duration of their studies, PhD candidates may be supported by scholarships.
Scholarships range from € 1100 to € 1400, the amount depends on the proposed research topic. For PhD candidates with a scholarship, the regional fee, the stamp duties and insurance costs will be withheld each year, from the first monthly grant. This amount is established on a yearly basis. For the academic year 2023-2024, this amount is equal to Euro 169.59 (unless there are changes in national and regional legislation). PhD students without a scholarship, for the first enrolment and for enrolment in the following years, will be required to pay the amount mentioned above.
Details regarding the scholarships are given in the call for admission and in the research topic form.
The submission of the application for the scholarship must come at the same time as the application. More information can be found in the call for applications.
In the event that the doctoral student must carry out study/research activities abroad (subject to approval by the Academic Board), the amount of the scholarship is increased by 50% for a total period not exceeding 12 months. This period can be extended up to an overall maximum of eighteen months for doctorates in co-supervision with foreign subjects or in agreement.
Those having benefited from a scholarship for a Ph.D. course, even partially, may not apply for a second time.
Once admitted, to avoid the risk of losing the scholarship, make sure to check all the deadlines and to confirm the acceptance of the scholarship by the deadline and to send all the documents for enrollment by the deadline.
Payment of the first installment of the scholarship will be paid in October (for entries in September) at the same time as the second installment. From November 2023 payments will be made approximately at the end of each month.
From the second installment onwards, any increases in the scholarship will also be included (the increases are divided into monthly installments). The second payment will also include any potential additional increments for the first two months, if applicable.
In addition, a fellowship around 5,000 euros for the 3 years set by the Department, may be provided to support the costs of your study path. (purchase of materials, books, participation in conferences, conventions, etc.) For more information, contact the PhD course secretariat.
