Scholarship: Support is generally intended to cover the cost of living, travel costs and incurred project costs

Application for a Kurt Hansen scholarship is open to students studying to be educators in the field of science. Key support areas include study projects, internships, summer courses, preparatory and supplementary study courses and theses. Assistance is also available for projects aimed at improving the training of science teachers.

Scholarship

Support is generally intended to cover the cost of living, travel costs and incurred project costs. It is offered for projects abroad by applicants such as internships, training courses, clinical work experience periods, semesters abroad, research projects, bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral thesis projects. Each applicant can request a specific amount of support by submitting a “cost plan”, and the Board of  Trustees then comes to a decision based on this request.

The scholarship is paid out in installments according to an individually agreed payment plan. The support is provided up to 1 year.

Eligibility

The foundation places great emphasis on internationalism, and therefore grants scholarships exclusively to students from German-speaking countries wishing to study abroad and foreign applicants who want to study in Germany. Regular support for studies in applicants’ home countries is not offered.

Applicants should be able to show good to very good final school marks as well as a particularly good intermediate diploma. Furthermore, a broad horizon and a high level of motivation and personal commitment are expected of all applicants – be it in a social, political or cultural field.

Application

The next application period for the Kurt Hansen Scholarships will be from June 1 until July 15, 2012.
