Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS)

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) is a joint interdisciplinary facility of the IOER and the Technische Universität Dresden. It hosts international doctoral candidates and invites applications from all disciplines selected in a competitive process, with an opportunity to be supported by a full-time scholarship for a period of three years.

The DLGS strives to develop novel insights and approaches to face the challenges of spatial sustainability transformations. It encourages and supports pioneering studies across a broad range of disciplines. The aims of the DLGS are to prepare the next generation of transformative leaders in spatial sustainability sciences. It strives to foster the academic and professional skills required to meet the diverse challenges related to spatial change dynamics and the global human-ecological crisis.

The DLGS offers a programme including diverse formats for developing theoretical, methodological and practical knowledge, which includes compulsory and elective academic modules, as well as informal events. DLGS scholarships are advertised once a year (June). Students with their own funding can apply for admission all year round as well as temporarily.
