The Bayer Science & Education Foundation Opens Selections for the New Fellowship Program
Applications to Become the New Pioneers of Tomorrow Must be Submitted Between June 1st and July 10th 2016January 25th, 2016
This program targets students and apprentices in scientific and medical disciplines and consists on financial support in order to provide five scholarship programs. The project to be supported must be innovative and international and the scholarships are granted exclusively to students from German-speaking countries wishing to study abroad, or to foreign students who are interested in a study project in Germany.
The goal of this program is to inspire knowledge and encourage talents within these five areas for which each has a specific Scholarship:
Life science, apply for the Otto Bayer Scholarship.
Medicine, apply for the Carl Duisburg Scholarship.
Agro Science, apply for the Jeff Schell Scholarship.
Biology and Chemistry Educators, apply for the Kurt Hansen Scholarship.
Apprentices and young professionals in no-academic professions can apply for the Hermann Strenger Scholarship.
Since the start of the 20th Century, the Bayer Group has been promoting the sciences with a systematic approach that comprises both financial and conceptual support. Scholarship programs and awards for outstanding research were central components of this work from an early stage.
The Bayer Foundation supports young talents, top researchers, social entrepreneurship and social commitment with their various programs and awards and promotes people and projects that make outstanding contributions in the fields of research, education and health as well as social ventures. They encourage students to follow their curious impulses with programs for schools, universities and scientific institutions and support those who take an active role in healthcare and the community. Here, the Bayer Foundation takes advantage of the Bayer Group’s international position and extensive network to bring clever minds together and discover new applications for innovative ideas.
