Ernst Mach Grant
The Ernst Mach Grants are named after the famous Austrian physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach (1838-1916). It consists of two sub-programmes, the Ernst Mach Grant worldwide and the Ernst Mach Grant for studying at an Austrian University of Applied Sciences (“Fachhochschule”).
Both are financed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education and Science (BMWF). Applications have to be submitted online at www.scholarships.at and then a board of representatives of the BMWF and the OeAD awards the Ernst Mach Grants based on the results of the assessment procedure. The duration of the grants vary according to the regulations of the sub-programmes (see below). Extensions are not possible with these programmes.
- The Ernst Mach Grant - worldwide aims at postgraduates (i.e. PhD students, post-docs and young university lecturers) who primarily want to perform research in Austria. The duration is between 1 and 9 months.
- The Ernst Mach Grant for studying at an Austrian University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule) aims at graduates who are participating in a master program or undergraduates who have successfully completed at least four semesters of studies within a bachelor- or diploma program at the time of taking up the grant. The duration of stay is between 4 to 10 months. To avoid any interference with grants/scholarships of the EU this programme is open just for non-European students (meaning all other continents than Europe).
