Albertus Magnus Scholarship Program
Since 2013, scholarship holders can be proposed for the Albertus Magnus Scholarship Programme of the German Bishops' Conference. The scholarship programme aims at the acquisition of a licentiate or a doctorate in theology or a neighbouring discipline at a university or theological university in Germany. In addition to providing scientific support, it also serves to get to know the social and ecclesiastical situation in Germany better and to promote exchange and dialogue between the local churches. It is aimed at students from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe.
Interested students from Central and Eastern Europe should first apply regularly for a Renovabis Study Scholarship, but enclose a 2- to 3-page letter of motivation with their application and for doctorates additionally a brief exposé/ project outline (2-3 pages).
