Pregnancy and Childbirth
Scholarship recipients are entitled to continue receiving a scholarship during the period of maternity leave.
The university management may limit the period during which the scholarship is paid to 15 weeks following the birth. Research students who gave birth while receiving scholarships will be entitled to the extension of the scholarship for the duration of their absence ("Rector's Scholarship"). In addition, research students who gave birth during their studies are entitled to extend them by two semesters, without being charged tuition or any additional payment due to this extension.
Postdoctoral fellows are entitled to continue receiving a scholarship during the period of absence following childbirth in the same way as research students, but they are entitled to the extension of the scholarship only when their training period is 24 months or more.
