Doctoral Fellowships

Doctoral fellowships are awarded on an individual basis to young scientists, often newly graduates, because of personal achievement (excellent study results) and/or after submission of a research project

The recipients are usually coached by a promoter, who often assists in formulating the research project, which frequently follows a Master thesis. 

A doctoral student is expected to prepare a dissertation.
