The partnership between the UC Berkeley and University of Muenster, Germany, was established in 2018. Both universities are now seeking to intensify their collaboration in Arts and Social Sciences, and Muenster University is pleased to announce one scholarship for a Berkeley graduate student wishing to do research in Muenster.
The University of Münster is one of the largest universities in Germany with a rich and time-honoured tradition. Fifteen faculties with 120 degree programs and 27 research centers comprise the institutional backbone of the University. Some 44,000 students and 5,700 academics appreciate the University's excellent research opportunities, high-quality teaching, promotion of junior researchers, and the advantages of living in the beautiful city of Muenster. The university's slogan sums it up best: "living.knowledge".
The scholarship is offered to all graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The hosting institution in Muenster is the smartNETWORK, which connects eight Graduate Schools and four Research Groups of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Network creates an interdisciplinary and international environment, including academic and social support. The scholarship offered by Muenster University is EUR 1000/month for a stay up to three months. The scholarship will be paid to the Berkeley student upon arrival in Muenster. In the selection of the candidates, preference is given to Berkeley students who can demonstrate in their application that they already have a faculty contact at Muenster University. This grant can be combined with other IES grants.
