The School is delighted to announce a limited number of travel awards for students who are interested in exploring the possibility of doctoral studies at the School. As part of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain’s commitment to supporting women in science and the humanities, 50% of awards will be reserved for female students.

This year, we are particularly hoping for applications by students with an interest in:

  • (Bounded) Rationality
  • Brain Plasticity and Lifespan Ontogeny
  • Philosophy of Mind

The awards will cover travel expenses and accommodation for four nights.


Applications should be made to admissions-please remove this text-@mind-and-brain.de.

Please send:

  • A short one- to two-page letter of application (detailing your reasons for applying for the travel award, your background and research interests);
  • Your academic CV;
  • A letter of recommendation.

Successful applicants will be invited to visit the School from 18 till 22 October 2011. They will have ample opportunities to meet with faculty and students relevant to their research interest, to view the School’s facilities and to get a better sense of the city itself. They will have the chance to take part in one of the School’s Teaching Weeks and hear the Feldberg Foundation Prize Lecture by Professor Eleanore A Maguire of University College London.

In order to be eligible for this award you need to meet the basic eligibility criteria for applying to the School’s doctoral program in 2012; in particular you need to have completed or be in the process of completing a Master’s or equivalent degree in an area of study relevant to the School.
