One major goal of the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences is a closer interlinkage of research and teaching. In this context, the provision of strong support of outstanding students through an early integration into current research projects is to contribute to further strengthen the natural sciences and the visibility of the Faculty.
Within the Measure "Strengthening the Natural Sciences," the five departments of the Faculty are provided with financial resources from the so-called Undergraduate Fund.
The Undergraduate Fund will mainly be used for Bachelor's students starting in the second semester. However, funding is also available students in Master's programs.
Funding may be allocated for stipends, in particular for participation in conferences, summer schools, and lab equipment. Students are also given the opportunitiy to carry out individual research projects.
