The Graduate Academy awards funding support to doctoral candidates at Heidelberg University who are in the final phase of their doctoral training without funding. Completion grants of 1,000 € per month can be awarded for a duration of up to a maximum of 6 months before submitting the dissertation to the Faculty (excl. Disputation/Rigorosum). Funding will be granted only for the writing process of the dissertation, which has to be completed and submitted at the end of the funding period. Grant recipients who fulfil the prerequisites are also entitled to apply for child care benefits.
Research activities belonging to the main phase of doctoral training as well as the examination period after submitting the dissertation and before the Disputation /Rigorosum will not be financed. Furthermore, the grant is not available for financing work leading up to publication after submitting the thesis, or for the period between the Disputation/Rigorosum and the final publication of the dissertation.

Further information about the grants is available in the statute (in German only), pp. 933-944.
