Passion for Science

TUM: Junge Akademie is the TUM's scholarship program for exceptionally talented and dedicated students, invititing to join also those of TUMJA´s partner universities.

It is not given that people take responsibility for their own personal development or plans, because the scope to develop and carry out an initial idea from start to finish is often limited. This is where the TUM: Junge Akademie can help by providing dedicated students with an individual scope for development on their way to reach positions of responsibility in our modern society. Among other things, the scholarship aims to confront the most promising students with open and particularly difficult problems at an early stage in order to 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 and cultural events as well as financial resources to implement project ideas and to facilitate comprehensive measures of training and personal development 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
