generous support to up to 20 alumni / alumnae of German universities.
Furthermore, the International Office of Leipzig University offers quite
a range of scholarships. On top of this a generous grant from DARIAH-EU
allows us to attribute quite a number of teaching fellowships. All
information on the already now (and eventually in the future) available
scholarships can be found here:
