One of the 19 tandems funded under the 2020 Pre-Doc Award consisted of Dennis Hof and Dr Alejandro Armas-Díaz from the Institute for Geography. Their interview in our German magazine is available here.
- About the Pre-Doc Award
Applications for the Pre-Doc Award 2021 close on 20 June. It was first awarded in 2017, when 15 tandems received funding. A jury consisting of members of the Research Commission decides which tandem applications to accept. The Pre-Doc Award 2021 is expected to fund twelve to 15 tandems.
In its current form, the Pre-Doc Award is unique to Leipzig University. In the four rounds so far, a total of 68 tandems from almost all of the University’s faculties have been funded. More than half of the tandems who participated in the programme up to 2020 managed to secure funding for their doctoral project.
