Call for proposals: joint doctorates with Ghent University

Ghent University opens applications, under its special research fund, for its joint doctoral grants. These support PhD students who wish to take a doctorate under joint supervision of Ghent University and a non-Flemish partner university or institution for higher education. The duration is a minimum of six months and a maximum of 24 months at Ghent University. This is an annual recurring call. This year’s deadline is Tuesday 1 March.

Two types of funding are available, covering only the stay at Ghent University:

1. PhD scholarship: Only PhD students who do not receive a PhD scholarship from the partner university/institution during the stay at Ghent University, can obtain a PhD scholarship via this call. The student will need written evidence from the partner university/institution that no PhD scholarship is paid during the stay at Ghent University. The Ghent University scholarship can be granted for 6 up to maximum 24 months. The PhD student receives a grant of minimum €1,903 per month and the Ghent University promoter a bench-fee of €310 per month.

2.Top-up funding: PhD students who do receive a PhD scholarship from the partner university/institution during the stay at Ghent University, can obtain top-up funding from Ghent University which is paid on top of the scholarship from the partner university/institution. This top-up funding consists of €1,000 per month’s stay at Ghent University to cover (part of) the costs for travel, accommodation, insurances, etc. plus a bench-fee of €310 per month intended for the Ghent University promoter. The top-up funding can be granted for 6 up to maximum 24 months.

Both types must result in a joint or double degree. No restrictions are imposed on the field of research, nor on the age of the applicant. Candidates must be enrolled at a non-Flemish university or institute of higher education.
