Doctoral candidates are awarded a four-year stipend and an office in the Mandel Building. They are also provided with a research budget that will allow them to organize conferences and workshops, research proposals and educational initiatives, as well as fund short-term and long-term travels abroad. Also offered are special academic and social activities – lectures, workshops, study groups, and academic trips.
