We are excited to announce that the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme has been extended to doctoral students! The new application period is now open and the project proposals can be submitted until 15 April 2023.

Applications are invited from academics who are currently pursuing a doctorate and have an employment contract (extended for the duration of the fellowship) with a Lower Saxonian or Scottish higher education institution.

The concept foresees that two doctoral researchers from both regions form a tandem working on a joint project over the period of maximum eighth months within the following time frame: 1 May 2023 – 31 December 2023). Short-term stays (up to four months per fellow) in the partner region are funded with 1,400 EUR per person per month.

We invite all interested researchers and university staff to our upcoming digital information sessions to learn more about this exciting new funding opportunity:
