Robert and Christine Danziger Scholarship

New for the winter semester 2021 | 2022

Apply for a Robert and Christine Danziger Scholarship from 1 May to 15 July, 2021. Please note that up to two scholarships will be awarded for the winter semester 2021/2022.

Many years of friendship and cooperation connect us to Ghana and, more recently, to other parts of West and Central Africa as well. With the scholarship, we want to support talented young people from African countries wishing to come to Heidelberg University to start and successfully complete a Master's degree or a doctorate. Where financial resources are limited, a scholarship can be crucial. Programs of study in the fields of Geography, Political Science and Sociology are particularly important to us.
