In the academic year 2021-2022, there were 15 funded scholarships. For the academic year 2022-2023, 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 at the end of summer semester. The selection will happen in summer. Sponsors will introduce themselves before the selection via company seminars.
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. Internship can lead to a master thesis in co-supervision with the sponsor and to a possible job offer.
What are the constraints?
Students have to take the intership in the company, otherwise they need to return the money.
