Have you ever considered going for a PhD? Maybe you are not ready to let go of the subject of your thesis and you wish to dig deeper. Then here’s your chance! You can apply for funding for a PhD-position now.

Each year three Master’s students/(recent) graduates can submit their research proposal to NWO’s ‘PhDs in the Humanities’ call. The intended supervisor needs to be affiliated with the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences or the Tilburg School of Catholic Theology, but external candidates are also invited to submit their proposal. If you want to apply, please contact your intended supervisor and start drafting a proposal. Please note that your average grade needs to be at least 8.0 to be eligible for this call.

The deadline for submitting proposals is Thursday October 28th, 2 PM. Proposals need to be submitted by the main-applicant (your supervisor), using the form of the previous call.

For more information, please contact Marjet van Loo.
