Call for Applications: Faculty Projects of the School for Talents

Finding and promoting talent, and being able to provide tailor-made offers to all of our students, is an important task of our university. In order to do justice to this task, the University of Stuttgart has been awarding funds to support high-performing students in their own discipline since 2019. The various offers of the departments are bundled in the School for Talents in order to initiate the exchange between faculty members on the topic of promoting the best students at our university.

The funds, distributed for the second time this year, enable the testing and implementation of concepts that focus on supporting talented (prospective) students in deepening skills within their own discipline. The emphasis lies on innovative teaching and learning formats for this target group.
