    A university is offering scholarships for you to do absolutely nothing

    A German university is soliciting submissions for just that, and three people will be awarded a $1,900 stipend.

    On Wednesday, The University of Fine Arts in Hamburg announced a call for applications for their "Scholarships for Doing Nothing," between now and September 15.

    see website below for details.

    I won't be applying -that's the best do nothing i can think of.

    Oh, I'd apply... I'm sure I could think of something - I mean some kind of nothing. But I'm ....just....too....lazy. Nap time - - -zzzz.

    From my last day job, I can tell with fervor that doing nothing is ... completely overrated. :)
    Won't apply.

    Best regards,

    Wait, is that DBA a Spanish Doctorado? That is so cheap! I assume it's the doctorate version of the titulo propio.
  6. I think so. Still, I want it but don't have the money :-(

    I dug a bit further.

    "El alumno tiene la opción de solicitarla la obtención de la doble titulación que ofrece la prestigiosa Universidad de San Miguel." Means roughly:

    You can get 2 diplomas - one from Campus Universitario Europeo and one from Universidad de San Miguel. Doesn't say if propio or not. I bet it is. After my nap, I might check. You can get same deal - same price on a PhD, so I doubt if either will get you anything like RA here, or what your local NARIC or equivalent might say in Europe.

    To me, this is a funny-looking setup. And I hope "setup" isn't the operative word. They have ads for courses from housekeeping aide to PhD on the same page. Same format you expect of a low-buck non-degree correspondence / home study school.

    I see more "red lights" here than I remember at a late 1800s Natchez, Mississippi house of ill repute... but for a different reason, of course.
  9. Might still buy it though. As long as I can call myself doctor after the course, I couldn't care less about it's quality to be honest :-/
