Bayer Fellowship Program
Promoting outstanding talent
For an inventor company like Bayer, young up-and-coming talent is fundamental to long-term success. The Bayer Science & Education Foundation therefore attaches great importance to promoting young talent in Germany and abroad and helping them get their careers off to a good start.
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:
- Otto Bayer Scholarships for students studying selected natural science and engineering disciplines
- Carl Duisberg Scholarships for students of human and veterinary medicine
- Kurt Hansen Scholarships for students training to become science teachers
- Hermann Strenger Scholarships for trainees and young professionals with a non-academic background working in the areas of technology, natural sciences, health care and business
The next application period for the Otto Bayer, Carl Duisberg, Kurt Hansen and Hermann Strenger Scholarships will be from June 1 until July 15, 2013.
The regular Bayer Fellowship Program is complemented by special additional offerings, which currently comprise:
- The Bayer Deutschlandstipendien – as part of the German government’s national Scholarship Program Act, the foundation sponsors 100 talented students of natural sciences or engineering at 23 German universities
- The Bayer Lindau Fellowships – the foundation enables selected young scientists from around the world to take part in the Nobel Laureate Meetings in Lindau
- The Bayer Science Teens Fellowships – the foundation enables schoolchildren to take part in an international science camp on environmental protection and sustainability
- The Bayer-Humboldt Research Fellowships – the foundation enables 10 international PostDoc research scientists from the Life Sciences, Chemistry and Pharmaceutics to conduct research assignments at scientific institutions in Germany – the program runs in Cooperation with the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Foundation
