Bayer Science and Education Foundation is accepting applications for its scholarship programmes. In the academic sector, ambitious students can apply for a Bayer, Carl Duisberg or Kurt Hansen scholarship if they are aiming to undertake a study project abroad.
The fields of study funded include biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, medicine, pharmacy, physics, statistics/biometrics and teacher-training in scientific subjects.
Each year, the Bayer Foundation makes available a total of up to 150,000 (6 million baht) for these scholarships. Sponsorship is open to students from Germany who are planning a period abroad and students from foreign countries who are looking to spend a period of study in Germany.
For the first time, the scholarships in the academic sector are being supplemented by Hermann Strenger scholarships to support young people looking to gain initial work experience as part of a non-academic training programme.
Applications are invited from committed trainees in commercial, industrial, scientific and medical occupations and young professionals in these fields who have completed their training within the past two years.
With this new programme, the Bayer Science and Education Foundation is looking to offer targeted funding to young people in the non-academic sector to allow them to gain professional experience abroad. The foundation will this year provide a further 50,000 (2 million baht) for this programme.
The closing date for applications for all four scholarship programmes is July 15. The application documents are available online at http://www.bayer-foundations.com. An independent scientific committee will decide on the allocation of funding in mid-Sept.
The Bayer Science and Education Foundation is launching the fourth round of the scholarship programme, which offers targeted support for scientific exchanges and international work experience for young people.
The programme follows the tradition of the first Bayer scholarships, created by Carl Duisberg in 1923. It is aimed at creative young people with above-average grades who demonstrate outstanding dedication and social commitment. The first three rounds of funding saw 70 students accepted on to the programme.
