In 2004 SPO-Frauen Johanna Dohnal presented a partial scholarship in the amount of tuition fee for one semester as their "Birthday present". At the time four female students were awarded with this scholarship. The main political objective of Johanna Dohnal scholarship`s was education of girls and women. Since 2006 these scholarships have become a tradition. Since this year (although not on yearly basis) one female student is awarded with a scholarship for research or writing a dissertation thesis. The number and amount of these scholarships depend on sponsors and donations.
The scholarship is given to female undergradruates and graduates.
