Funding Opportunities and Programs

 

RWTH Aachen is particularly committed to building and expanding our partnership with the University of Alberta in both education and research. In 2017, we also signed a „Memorandum of Understanding“ to this end. Every year, Master’s students, doctoral candidates, postdocs, and established researchers have the opportunity to apply for funding for a research or academic stay at the partner institution. RWTH has specifically created the scholarship program „RWTH – University of Alberta Research Fellowships“ for this reason.

An overview of information regarding this and other funding programs offered by RWTH as well as by external sponsors can be found in the following tables.

The International Office will be happy to advise and support you – including assistance with applications to external sponsors.
