travel lump sums + 460 € per year

The selection process comprises two stages: Applications are sent to the
Doctoral Program in Buddhist Studies in Munich. The program will select
promising candidates, who then have to submit their materials to the DAAD.
It is expected that the successful candidates will be chosen and informed
by February 2017.

The prerequisites for application are non-German citizenship, a Master of
Arts or Magister Artium degree or equivalent, excellent knowledge of at

submission of their materials to the DAAD (in December or January) and the
last final examination should have taken place no more than six years
