Supporting students and early career researchers

Are you thinking about engaging as a mentor, offering internships, or awarding scholarships or prizes? These are some of the ways you can help foster the careers of students tangibly or intangibly.

We at the University of Stuttgart place great importance on the support and promotion of early career researchers. Not only do we turn students into outstanding experts in their particular field, we also mold them into globally-thinking and responsible citizens with an inclusive attitude for science, society, and business. In the process, our industrial partners play an important role, both by offering internship placements and by providing scholarships and awards, as well as through their involvement in the mentoring program.

In cooperation with the Gender Equality Officer, the Graduate Academy of the University of Stuttgart offers mentoring programs that are gender- and diversity-sensitive. In these programs, early career researchers have the opportunity to build and expand networks in business, industry, and society across disciplines, generations, and institutions. You can support them as a mentor in this process.

For years, the Germany scholarship has been popular with its donors. It is match-funded by the government. Selection criteria for scholarship awardees are not only academic merit, but also engagement and special strengths.
