The University of Potsdam aims to deepen and extend its relationships with colleagues and universities from the US. Therefore, it is possible for young excellent colleagues who are currently associated with a US-American university to apply for scholarships. There are:

  • 4 top-scholarships of up to 1,350 USD (travel and accommodation;  actual costs)
  • 4 scholarships of up to 900 USD (travel and accommodation;  actual costs)

The application for a scholarship must be shown in the regular application document (see above). In this case, we expect a more detailed explanation as to how participation in the summer school will have a positive effect on the envisaged academic career. The winners of the scholarships will be selected jointly by the four mentors of the summer school, and solely on the basis of the documents submitted.
