Mobility Fund for Master Students from TU Berlin to Jordan

Call for Applications:
Mobility Fund for 3 Master Students looking to pursue their Research-Design studies in Jordan

Research Context: „Architectures of Asylum"
The scholarships serves as an opportunity for master students to do a research-based design project (Lehrforschungsprojekt) or Master Thesis in the framework of the research project „Architectures of Asylum". The project is hosted at the Collaborative Research Center „Re-Figurations of Space" (SFB1265) funded by the German Research Society (DFG).

„Architectures of Asylum" investigates processes of spatial appropriation in refugee camps, comparatively, in Jordan and Berlin. It builds on the extensive engagement and research activities of the Chair in regard to refugee camps in the Middle East. In that sense, the scholarship offers not only financial support for the students, but also supervision, guidance, institutional support, and infrastructure necessary for such studies. Thus, the accepted applicants will be independent in their research, yet, need to operate within the objectives and framework of the research project „Architectures of Asylum".
