The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne, the Graduate School of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Cologne, Germany offers
20 PhD scholarships over a period of three years.
Starting date is April 1st, 2015.

The Graduate School – successful in the excellence initiative – wants to facilitate the completion of the Doctorate through a structured program and intensive individual mentorship within an interdisciplinary environment. In doing so the Graduate School follows a concept of the Humanities beyond the dichotomy between the so-called cultural sciences and the humanities. Of special significance are hermeneutical and historico-contextual knowledge models, which comprise the genesis and invention of knowledge, as well as the processes of reception and transculturation and their anthropological and ethical conditions. The Graduate School has a linguistic section that is closely related to the broad linguistic research in Cologne (even if that is not clear from the official text), see website:
