This year, we can only offer a very limited number of scholarships for travel and accommodation to support students. Please in any case approach your home university regarding financial support as well — we’ll be happy to advise you on this.
The organizers of the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni at the University of Bremen coordinate all scholarships. The allowances will be issued in regard to the overall travel expenses: 7,50 Euro per overnight stay and (partly) travel expenses according to consultation with us. We expect our scholarship holders to choose the cheapest bus/train/flight ticket option so that we can fund as many participants as possible. Public transport in Bremen will not be covered and not returned.
We will support international students to find cheap and good accommodation in the near of the university, according to individual contacts in advance.
Evidence must be provided for all expenses. Please note that original documents must be provided in Bremen as supporting evidence.
Reimbursements of expenses will be paid around 2-3 months after the end of the summer universities (other arrangements are possible only for international students, according to individual contacts in advance).
Scholarship holders are exempt from the participation fee.
Financial support by other universities
In past years, a lot of universities supported their students financially to a certain extent, assisting them in covering the costs of participation for the summer universities. Please contact your dean or the faculty’s equal opportunity officer at your university.
An application for a scholarship has to be filed in the application form. Furthermore, a scholarship application letter needs to be turned in via e-mail or facsimile within 7 days of your application. Claims submitted later cannot be considered!
How to write a scholarship application letter?
The letter should be informal. Please send us a PDF document, including your own letterhead, addressed to Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni (see below).
Please outline briefly your progress with your studies and why you would like to participate in the summer universities at the University of Bremen.
