AFL member Rhea von Busse has received a FAZIT stipend, which is a foundation of the FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), which is one of the biggest, reputable German newspapers. They are mainly known to support Journalists in their career but they also support scientific research by giving stipends to doctoral and postdoctoral candidates. Rhea says "I didn’t even know that they provide PhD stipends, but one of the grant counselors at my University told me to apply there and don’t feel discouraged by their guidelines, which mostly address Journalists.". Rhea has collected all of her data to finnish her PhD thesis, and now "only" has to analyze those and write up some manuscript.
Congratulations to Rhea!
