Mathematics Münster Full Grant Scholarship

The Mathematics Münster Master’s Scholarship is awarded to talented students who will contribute to the international research environment of the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster at the University of Münster (WWU). The scholarship holders will enjoy flexibility and academic freedom in the WWU Masters programme, meeting students and researchers from all over the world.

Students who have completed a first degree (Bachelor, Diplom or comparable academic degree) before the start of the scholarship. Applicants must meet the admission requirements or be enrolled within less than six months in the M.Sc. Mathematics Münster programme. Applicants are only eligible if they have not spent more than twelve months within the last three years in Germany.

The scholarship offers monthly payments of 934 Euro (corresponding to BAföG), in addition to a once paid lump sum for travel expenses (the exact value will depend on your country of origin), and the semester fee at WWU.

While the admission process takes place via the WWU-online application, we additionally require

  • a letter of motivation to pursue your Masters studies at WWU.
  • two letters of recommendation from university professors (not necessarily from your home institution). Those must be sent directly from the letter writers to us by e-mail.

These documents have to be sent to before 31 May. Further questions can also be directed to this same email.

Applicants will be selected by the Masters Admission Committee of M.Sc. Mathematics Münster. They will be rated according to their academic excellence, and motivation to pursue studies at WWU. The best candidates will be invited to an online interview with the selection committee.

While it is intended that scholarship holders receive funding for the complete two-year period of the Masters programme, the scholarship is granted for twelve+twelve months. The extension of the scholarship to the second year is subject to a positive evaluation, based on a two-page report of activities and your transcript of records.

The University of Münster is committed to ensuring equitable access to mathematics opportunities and resources for people of any race, ethnicity, religious belief, gender identity, age, economic background, disability status, or any other social or physical component of their identity.
