Basic Funding of Your Doctorate

To cover your expenses during your research phase there are several possibilities available to you. Generally, a doctorate is financed by a job as a research assistant at KIT, or by means of a scholarship.

It is not unusual to finance your doctorate through several different sources. The fewest of doctoral researchers in Germany only receive one form of financing during their research phase. Be aware of this and acquire transitional or follow-up funding in due time.
