The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne wants to support young academics with children as much as possible. For this reason, a.r.t.e.s. provides special funding and child care for families.
Within the framework of a.r.t.e.s. family support, scholarship holders can apply for a family supplement of up to EURO 400 per month (EURO 100 for every subsequent child). In addition to this, the scholarship can be adapted to suit the needs of parents, e.g. a part-time scholarship is possible. This also applies for scholarship holders who care for dependent relatives.
There is also a family room (room 1.B18) set up in the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School which means that academics can take babies or children to the school while they are researching, working etc. A baby changing unit can be found in the family room. Furthermore, child care is provided during conferences.
