Manfred Ulmer Scholarship

Acting on behalf of the "Stiftung Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft an der Universität Konstanz", a University of Konstanz foundation, the Zukunftskolleg awards the Manfred Ulmer Scholarship once every year.

The programme pays 1,000 euros per month over a period of six months. It enables scholars to bridge a financial gap between their studies and their doctoral phase. For the duration of the funding period, scholarship recipients are members of the Zukunftskolleg as Associated Fellows.
