Excellent support and funding

The Max Planck Schools invite highly talented Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates from all over the world to apply to their competitive PhD programs. The next application cycle will take place in Fall 2020. Applications will go through a multi-stage selection process. Each school provides further information about the application process in their sections on this website.

As a member of the Max Planck Schools, you will be able to pursue topics at the forefront of fundamental and applied research and will benefit from close mentoring by internationally renowned researchers. Furthermore, excellent infrastructures at various research institutions and universities throughout Germany will be at your disposal to focus on your research interests.

Admission to a Max Planck School comes with funding up to five years. This ensures that the students and doctoral candidates of a School can devote themselves entirely to their scientific work. The calls for applications are designed to match the international application cycles of elite universities.
