Association for the promotion of young talent in Germany
The „Association of Begabtenförderungswerke of Germany“ is a confederation of twelve foundations, which is to represent all major groups in society. Supported by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the foundations are united by the common claim to sponsor academic talents, both financially and ideationally.
The scholarship holders receive financial support in the form of a basic grant (similar to federal financial aid) plus money for books and grants for studying, language courses and internships abroad. Interdisciplinary seminars, symposia, academies, conferences and workshops offer ideational support to the scholarship holders. In addition, contacts with lecturers, liaison professors and tutors are maintained, so that the scholarship holders will be involved in relevant networks.
