For Apprentices and Young Professionals

You do not need a degree to change the world.

 

 

Not everyone thinks the same way, and by providing opportunities for brilliant young people without an academic background, we want to bring a diversity of perspectives to the forefront of science.

 

This unique fellowship can be used for internships, research projects, personal development (including language courses), as well as to support young parents undertaking further training.

 

 

Hermann Strenger Fellowships for Apprentices & Young Professionals


The detailed eligibility criteria are currently under review, though this fellowship is for apprentices or young professionals without a university education and less than five years of employment.

 

We particularly encourage applications from parents with young children and people with German as a second language.

Time taken for parental leave or other exceptional circumstances does not contribute to the five-year period.

For Student Teachers & Teachers

Science is for everyone, not just scientists.

 

 

We believe that trust in science begins with making science education exciting and inclusive for all pupils, regardless of whether they want to become scientists or not. Through our actions at Bayer Foundation, we want to give all children and young people the ability to understand the science that effects their lives as well as inspire the next generation of scientists.

 

This fellowship is designed for teachers that will shape the perspectives of future generations and provides funding for internships, research projects, further training and science communication relating to STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics)-education.
