Welcome to the Graduate Academy


The Graduate Academy is the central coordinating body for all support services related to general advising, professional and academic development and financial assistance for doctoral candidates at Heidelberg University. On our website, you will find information about pursuing a doctoral degree at the University, about the courses offered by the Graduate Academy, about sources of funding for doctoral candidates as well as many other relevant topics.

The Graduate Academy is also the first point of contact for University professors and researchers who wish to create new training opportunities and programmes for doctoral candidates.


Current News and Events


Important information about the fellowships funded through the Landesgraduiertenförderung

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Art has indicated that funding for the Landesgraduiertenförderung Programme will be significantly reduced in 2018. As we have not yet received the authoritative information necessary for our budget planning, we are not able to foresee at this time whether we will be able to award any new fellowships this year.

Applications for fellowship extensions can be submitted here as of now and until 30 April 2018. Please be aware that the expected funding cuts may also make it necessary to reduce the fellowship extensions.
