Stipendienprojekte / Scholarships

We are running several projects based on awarded scholarships to PhD Students from the DAAD, KAAD and other governmental agencies. PhD Students in our house come from China, Indonesia, India, Iran, Thailand, Turkey, Mexico, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kamerun, Slowakia, Bangladesh, Vietnam and from Germany. Foreign students are welcome to apply for practical trainees (DAAD / IAESTE - program) or for our PhD-program. For information please contact Karl Schellander.
