Selection Process

Because we are advertising only one doctoral scholarship, the competetion will be strong. From our experience, applicants with more unusual academic backgrounds for the scientific study of the mind and the brain will be unlikely to succeed. Therefore, should you not have the academic background recommended for our graduate school – i.e., philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, psycholinguistics -, you should perhaps reconsider applying for this scholarship.
