The interdisciplinary Gender Studies Doctoral Program (DoPro Gender Studies) at UZH is intended for doctoral students from a participating discipline who are working on a thesis with a thematic and / or systemic focus on gender.
While the Doctoral Program does not itself fund the doctorate, students can apply for UZH scholarships at: http://www.researchers.uzh.ch/en/funding/phd.html as well as the corresponding Swiss national scholarship programs such as the SNF: http://www.snf.ch/en/funding/careers/docch/Pages/default.aspx. The program reimburses only a limited scope of expenses for travel costs in the course of doctoral thesis research.
Doctoral students participating in the program acquire the specialised theoretical and methodological knowledge within the field of international gender studies pertinent to their respective research interest. Events organised by the DoPro Gender Studies are held in both English and German.
