Research Grants - Bi-nationally Supervised Doctoral Degrees / Cotutelle

Bi-nationally supervised doctoral degrees provide doctoral candidates, young academics, and scientists with the opportunity to take part in an international research project between the home
university and a university in Germany. This programme currently offers two different types of funding schemes. The first option
is a bi-nationally supervised doctoral degree, a doctorate which is supervised by an additional professor at a university in Germany, but the degree is awarded by the home university only. The second
option is a doctorate following the Cotutelle scheme, which is awarded by the home and the German university, that has a previous institutional agreement to jointly award the PhD title.
