In the course of the Hochschulraumstrukturmittel-project (project for the structural funding of the Higher Education Area) "Center for Doctoral Studies", two new grants for doctoral candidates enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna or the University of Art and Design Linz could be established: the Dissertation Completion Fellowship and the Travel Allowances for doctoral candidates. Both grants were advertised for the first time in the academic year 2014/15.
Beside the scholarships of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna there are also a variety of external grants and fellowships for doctoral students. We collected them for you and hope that this overview provides you with useful information.
