Every year, the Bayer Foundation’s Science@School program provides up to EUR300,000 of funding for school projects that can help children see science and research in a whole new light. In this interview, Anna Gerliz, a general studies teacher at Overath Elementary School near Cologne, talks about her microscopy project. It was selected to receive funding in 2020.
Bayer Foundation will provide EUR 40,000 per year over the next three years to support digital learning by children and young people in the natural sciences through the “Wuppertal Junior University for the Bergisches Land region”
Enabling Young African Scientists to Become Scientific Leaders in Their Community
The Bayer Foundation will extend its existing cooperation with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), now making research grants available in Germany for doctoral students from across sub-Saharan Africa. PhD fellowships and a research hub in sub-Saharan Africa will further enhance the partnership and facilitate the development of the next generation of scientific leaders within their communities.
