Travel awards, especially (but not only) for women

An interesting approach…

The Berlin School of Mind and Brain is delighted to announce a limited number of travel awards for students who are interested in exploring the possibility of doctoral studies at the School. As part of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain’s commitment to supporting women in science and the humanities, 50% of awards will be reserved for female students.

This year, we are particularly hoping for applications by students with an interest in:
– Philosophy of Mind

The awards will cover travel expenses and accommodation for four nights.

Please send:
– A short one- to two-page letter of application (detailing your reasons for applying for the travel award, your background and research interests);
– Your academic CV;
– A letter of recommendation.

Successful applicants will be invited to visit the School from 7 till 11 October 2012. They will have ample opportunities to meet with faculty and students relevant to their research interest, to view the School’s facilities and to get a better sense of the city itself.

In order to be eligible for this award you need to meet the basic eligibility criteria for applying to the School’s doctoral program in 2013; in particular you need to have completed or be in the process of completing a Master’s or equivalent degree in an area of study relevant to the School.

Further details about eligibility criteria for study at the School can be found here.
