POWERst Spring School 2023

The POWERst Spring School 2023 aims to empower first generation students from our project partner universities. Therefore, tailor-made support through empowering workshops and coaching on career perspectives, a platform for international exchange and a networking opportunity are to be provided. The Spring School 2023 is an essential part of the EU-funded project "POWERst - emPOWERing first generation STudents".


The POWERst Spring School directly targets all first-generation students.
From Feb. 27rd to March 3rd, 2023, students from non-academic backgrounds will receive tailor-made support in the form of empowering workshops and coaching on career perspectives to help them reach their full potential.

During networking events, students will not not only be given the opportunity to meet former first-generation students already in employment, but also the space to reflect on the option of pursuing a PhD.

At the same time, the Spring School provides a platform for expressing aspirations and developing ideas for a more inclusive higher education, as well as for meeting and exchanging ideas with first-generation students from all of the project's partner universities.


The registration period for POWERst Spring School has ended on January 27th, 2023 11:59pm. Registration is no longer possible at this time. If you have any questions regarding your registration or the POWERst Spring School, please contact Ms. Eva Lidl
