German Federal Environmental Foundation - Scholarships (DBU)


Doctoral Scholarship Programme

The Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt has established a German scholarship programme to promote promising young scientists in the field of environmental protection.

About 60 scholarships for Doctoral candidates from different disciplines - mostly in chemistry, biology and engineering - are offered per annum.

Scholarship applications can be submitted twice a year by 15 Feb and 15 Aug. Besides a brief and a detailed description of the research project further documents are necessary. Relevant forms can be obtained from the DBU office or via Internet-download (german version).

The application will be assessed by external experts. Then the most promising candidates are invited to present their topic in a selection procedure which is held in the DBU office twice a year. The committee consists of about 20 independent external and DBU scientists.
