Scholarship System

Begabtenförderungswerke offer financial support, individual funding and an extensive network for outstanding students and young academics. The scholarship programmes of the Begabtenförderungswerke give doctoral candidates the opportunity to concentrate fully on their research projects without having to worry about finances.

The funding not only includes financial support, but also a wide range of opportunities for personal and professional development, such as seminars, workshops and international exchange programmes.
