The Funding Opportunities, Awards and Post-doctoral Funding sections contain a list of funding options available to early stage researchers regardless of current announcements, such as merit fellowships, research fellowships, grants from foundations and associations as well as special interest groups, from provinces, cities and towns, associations, parties, foundations and private persons.
We recommend to gather information on these additional sources of funding via the internet. Some useful websites include the following:
Note: If you are considering funding your doctoral studies through a scholarship or grant rather than a position, you should keep in mind that health insurance is not included in a scholarship or grant.
Another option for funding your doctoral studies, besides a scholarship or grant, is to participate in a third-party funded project, e.g. FWF research project.Furthermore, it is a good idea to regularly check the current job advertisements of the University, which often include positions for doctoral candidates. If you are open to pursuing your doctoral studies at another university in connection with a position, you should check the newsletters of the respective universities and their job websites.
If you are interested in a funded mobility programme, you should contact the Office of International Relations. You can find specific information on study abroad scholarships for Austrian candidates on the webpage of the Austrian Agency for International Mobility and Cooperation in Education and Research (OeAD).
Unfortunately, information on funding opportunities is very often only available in German.
