Pre-Doctoral Contracts – Competitive Calls

At the moment, and unlike in Bachelor and Master studies, there are no public national scholarships to fund the enrolment for doctoral studies.

There are several public institutions who launch annual competitive calls of predoctoral contracts, this is, employment contracts for the development of the doctoral thesis within a research group of the Universitat Politècnica de València. These contracts are awarded in annual competitive calls, which, in each case, manage the convening institutions.
