Due to the key position of the German pulp and paper industry within Europe and its steady growth, the national pulp and paper industry is dependent on young professionals. The Master degree program “Paper Science and Technology – paper technology and bio-based fiber materials” is financially supported between the 5th and 10th semester. A monthly scholarship of 250,- Euro will be awarded to up to three students per year. The scholarships are provided by the Federation of Employers of Paper Industries (VAP) in Bonn and the Förderverein Papierzentrum Gernsbach e.V. (EPF) in Gernsbach.
Various companies in the paper industry are also offering scholarships.
Further information can be obtained from the head of the department, Prof. Dr.-Ing. S. Schabel.
