Passion for Science

TUM: Junge Akademie is TUM's scholarship program for exceptionally talented and dedicated students, also inviting students of TUMJA's partner universities.

It is not given for granted that people take responsibility for their personal development or plans because the scope to develop and carry out an initial idea from start to finish is often limited. That is where the TUM: Junge Akademie can help by providing dedicated students with an individual scope for development to reach positions of responsibility in our modern society. The scholarship aims to confront the most promising students with open and challenging problems and teach them how to solve such issues.

Right from the beginning, the participants are involved in a vibrant network consisting of alumni of the academy, members of both the active professors and the TUM Emeriti of Excellence, as well as young researchers. There are exclusive workshops, cultural events, and financial resources to implement project ideas and to facilitate comprehensive training and personal development measures beyond the respective fields of study.



Working on the scientific projects is the core element in the scholarship program of TUM: Junge Akademie. Find out more about the current student research projects. more
