Abstract

We analyse a policy experiment that allows universities to offer scholarships to their PhD students, alongside the more customary model of offering them an employment contract. The key question is whether the experiment so far has had any adverse effects on the research climate for the PhD students (their status, income position, supervision and integration in the research group). In doing so we compare the different types of PhD students and conclude that the PhD scholarship students receive the same treatment as other PhD candidates in terms of supervision and research facilities. Moreover, they feel at home in the research group.
