Promoting Young Academics at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities

 

Promoting young academics is of major importance to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and RWTH supports this process in many ways.

In addition to the structured doctoral studies program, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities offers its own young academics program.

In addition, the Young Academics Forum offers a platform for regular interaction between interested academic staff and scholarship holders of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. In addition to the professional exchange of information on current and planned research projects, the other focal points of the Young Academics Forum are research methods and strategies as well as the exchange of information on the subject of teaching.

Young Academics Program of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities

The Young Academics Program - Gemeinsam.Weiter.Denken - aims to support the international networking and third-party funding of young academics at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

Support is provided for academic staff of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at RWTH Aachen University who are pursuing a doctorate or post-doctoral qualification. Furthermore, scholarship holders of RWTH graduate funding are eligible to apply if they are pursuing a research project at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of RWTH.
