The Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) offers 25 doctoral training grants under its AFR funding scheme (“Aides à la Formation-Recherche”).
The forthcoming annual AFR Deadline is 15th March 2018.
The AFR PhD grant scheme is divided into two sub-categories:
AFR PhD in Luxembourg (AFR Incoming): Candidates from any nationality may apply for a doctoral position in an eligible Luxembourg host institution. Candidates will have to spend 50% in Luxembourg under an employment contract with the host institution;
AFR PhD abroad (AFR Outgoing): Luxembourg nationals, or residents in Luxembourg for more than 5 consecutive years, may apply for a doctoral position in a public higher education institution abroad. The rule for this type of AFR grants is an employment contract with the institution abroad, but in exceptional cases, grants without a work contract can be awarded.
Call Guidelines and Application Documents are available via the FNR website: https://www.fnr.lu/funding-instruments/afr/ (see “2018 Call Documents”)
