Students get 500€ a month for a year and is an additional mean of financing that has nothing to do with Federal Law on Support in Education or similar aids. For the presentation of the findings the scholars can inquire about another 500€ of travel expenses. The application has to be filed together with the caretaker who has to be a member of the Gesellschaft für Kardiologie.
The scholarship is for doctoral candidates in the field of human medicine that plan on doing a experimental or clinical dissertation.
