I am applying for a PhD program at Ruhr and getting ready to send in my application materials to the department. The application materials include: curriculum vitae, short answer questions, application essay, and a writing sample. I will also be sending a cover letter to accompany my application materials. My writing sample is way too long (35 pages). Wish me luck!


thank u for posting.

Ty for sharing this. I am going nuts trawling the net for scholarships.


If I am not mistaken this is quite an old german univ, tried to look up more, but a lot of the info is available in the german language…i hope this univ has english instruction.


This looks interesting, very difficult to locate scholarships for cultural anthropolgy..will try.
