Hertie School

Call for Applications: PhD scholarships 

The Hertie School is offering eight PhD scholarships to outstanding master’s students interested in pursuing a PhD in its Doctoral Programme in Governance as of 1 August 2022. 

Deadline for applications: 16 January 2022  

The Hertie School offers doctoral education in the social sciences in an international and multidisciplinary setting. To find answers to today’s social, political, legal and economic challenges, our doctoral researchers work with distinguished scholars in their discipline or at one of our Centres (Centre for Digital Governance, Centre for Fundamental Rights, Centre for International Security, Centre for Sustainability, Jacques Delors Centre).  

Rigorous academic training, close supervision and institutional support, and the opportunity to develop professional skills prepare our PhD researchers for leading academic and research careers in academic and non-academic institutions.   

The Hertie School is part of a vibrant research hub in the heart of Berlin and closely cooperates with leading doctoral programmes in Europe through the EU-funded CIVICA project.  

We are interested in applications from candidates with an exceptionally strong master’s degree (or equivalent) in economics, law, political science, sociology, public administration, management, or related fields. The master's degree should be completed before entering the programme. We especially encourage women and international candidates to apply.
