International students wishing to go for a Master at the Abbe School of Photonics can apply for a scholarship, which is granted in cooperation with partners from the German Optics & Photonics industry, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the County of Thuringia.
Scholarships are granted for the two-year Master Photonics program at the Abbe School of Photonics and comprise a stipend of 715 Euro per month. The scholarships include covering of university fees, free use of local public transportation, health insurance, and language courses. Approximately 30 scholarships are available per year.
Please note: To apply for a scholarship at the Abbe School of Photonics it is not necessary to submit certified copies (paper) of the above mentioned documents. However, upon acceptance students will be asked to send certified copies via post. For upload of documents only pdf documents are acceptable.
Application deadline for Scholarships: For the scholarships the same deadline as for admission to the Master Photonics program applies (March 31, 2011)
Chinese, Vietnamese and Mongolian applicants: Since the certificate of the Academic Evaluation Centres is not required for the application for the scholarship you can send this document later, i.e. upon acceptance. However the certificate of the Academic Evaluation Centres will in most cases be required later on to get admission to the Master program.
German students: We are sorry but German students can not apply for a Photonics Scholarship since these scholarships are exclusively for international students.
