Bayer Fellowship Program
Promoting outstanding talent
The Bayer Science & Education Foundation supports talented young individuals in Germany and other countries in realizing special study and career plans with the help of tailored scholarship programs.
The regular Bayer Fellowship Program is geared to students and trainees in scientific, technical and medical disciplines. Internationalism is a central aspect of this program, and therefore the foundation grants scholarships exclusively to applicants from German-speaking countries wishing to go abroad and foreign applicants who want to come to Germany.
The program comprises the following scholarships:
- The Otto Bayer scholarship supports students studying natural sciences and engineering
- The Carl Duisberg scholarship supports students of human and veterinary medicine
- The Kurt Hansen scholarship enables students training to become science teachers
- The Hermann Strenger scholarship aims at commercial, science/technical and health care trainees
The current application period for scholarships is over. Applications can be submitted from June 1, 2014 to July 15, 2014.
