On the occasion of Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Georg Ress birthday, the Europa-Institut, together with students and friends of Georg Ress, former and current directors and staff of the Europa-Institut and with the help of private sponsors, initiated a so-called Deutschlandstipendium ("Germany scholarship") in honour of the long-standing director.
Professor Ress was a lecturer at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg, Director of the Europa-Institute at Saarland University and judge at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. His scientific achievements were honoured with several honorary doctorates and he received numerous other awards. You can find out more about Georg Ress here.
Particularly talented and socially committed students of the Europa-Institut are supported. They receive 300 euros per month for one year, starting this winter semester. The scholarship relieves the scholarship holders of financial burdens, allows them to concentrate on their studies, gives them the chance to engage in society and enables them to make numerous contacts during their studies at the Europa-Institut for their later career.
What is a Deutschlandstipendium ("Germany scholarship")?
Deutschlandstipendien ("Germany scholarships") are awarded within the framework of a support programme of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. They are financed half by the Federal Government and half by private sponsors. By co-financing these scholarships, the Federal Government aims to contribute to establishing a scholarship culture in Germany.
Scholarship holders receive 300 euros per month for one year. Every year Saarland University, with the support of theStudienStiftungSaar, awards the German scholarships for which students of the Master's program at the Europa-Institut can also apply.
In 2020, three Deutschlandstipendien ("Germany scholarships") will be awarded to students of the Europa-Institut. One of them will be funded by the alumni association EVER e.V., another by the StudienStiftungSaar itself and all three will be joined by the new "Georg Ress Germany Scholarship" this year.
