MGK
Integrated Graduate School

The main aim of the Integrated Research Training Group Register Knowledge is to train a generation of future scholars in the linguistic study of register knowledge. For the 24 doctoral students working in CRC Register, the MGK will provide a set of specific qualification strategies including methods schools, mentoring, exchange stays and peer-to-peer networking events, and with its open recruitment for one-year student fellowships it will underpin the excellence and diversity strategy of the CRC.

Fellowship program

The MGK regularly provides fellowships for up to 1-year to PhD students(-to-be) who work on CRC’s research topics. A call for a new round of fellowships will be open soon
