Students beginning a physics course or those in later semesters are invited to apply for a place in a new scholarship programme at Heidelberg University that has been launched by the software and consulting company SNP SE. Prof. Dr Bernhard Eitel, Rector of Ruperto Carola, and SNP CEO Dr Jens Amail have just signed a grant agreement to this effect. The scholarship is intended to support students in developing their talents and potential in the best way and in successfully managing their degree course despite possible biographical obstacles. At the same time, it aims to boost the area of MINT subjects.
The SNP SE scholarship goes to students wishing to start on, or already enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s course in physics at Heidelberg University. It is granted for two semesters and may be extended, as appropriate. The grant agreement provides for two scholarships to be awarded annually from the coming winter semester. The programme is initially planned to last five years. The Faculty of Physics and Astronomy will select the scholarship-holders.
