HYT Young Academy

The HYT Academy is the scholarship to kick-start your career at Siegen University. The scholarships are intended for excellent Master- and PhD-Students who are at the beginning of their courses.

Twice a year (usually end of May and end of November) there is a call for applications

The Scholarship

The scholarship is usually granted for two years. PhD-scholars receive 1500 EUR/month plus up to 1500 EUR/year for expenses. Master scholars receive 400 EUR/month plus up to 750 EUR/year for expenses. For larger projects (like organising a conference) it is possible to pool funds of multiple scholars.

The Academy

Scholars work in interdisciplinary groups and meet in a monthly research colloquium. The sessions can consist of a talk on a broader academic topic, coaching on technical aspects or seminars helping you further your academic career. The research colloquium is either held by a mentor of one of the scholars or by someone members of the academy invited. This ensures our scholars shape the semester programme and make it match their academic interests.
