The master program in Data Science and Scientific Computing will provide some enrolled students with scholarships of 2800 euros to cover the enrollment fee and for partial support.
The scholarships "Training the Specialists of the Future" are funded by private companies and institutions (see the list of sponsors here) to support talented students enrolling in the master program. In the academic year 2017-2018, there were 15 funded scholarships. For the academic year 2018-2019, information on the number of available scholarships will be available soon.
The grant amounts to 2800 euros (2562 after tax).
Who can apply?
Students regularly enrolled in the first year of the DSSC master program.
When to apply?
The call is expected to come out in October 2018. The selection will be in November 2018. Sponsors will introduce themselves before the selection.
How will the selection work?
The selection will consist of an interview of students interested in a sponsor, held by the sponsor itself. Each sponsor will provide a rank of students, while students will rank sponsors. A selection committee will build an optimal match out of these ranks.
What will happen next?
Each scholarship is connected with a sponsoring company or institution, which will assign a tutor to the selected student and will offer an internship during the second year. This can lead to a master thesis in co-supervision with the sponsor and to a possible job offer.
What are the constraints?
Scholarships are linked to a specific curriculum, i.e. either Data Science or Computational Science and Engineering. Students that get a scholarship connected with a curriculum, are required to choose such a curriculum in their study plan in order to receive the grant.
