Scholarships and Awards

  • "Award of Excellence" of the Austrian Minister of Sciences - The 'Awards of Excellence' were founded in 2008 to recognize Austria's best PhD graduates across all research fields. Each university may nominate only a few recent thesis, the precise number being determined by the number of students.
