General Information

People during their training and further education period, in particular students (incl. PhD students), who go abroad for one scientifically qualifying stay are eligible to apply. Support will be granted for stays abroad which foster the scientific qualifications of scholarship recipients, e.g. project-related work assignments, seminars, summer courses. Mainly, scholarships will be offered in the areas of Natural Sciences, Engineering, Technology and Business or Economic Sciences.


Further Selection Criteria
