Award for outstanding achievement
Merit-based scholarships from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research are awarded each year to students with outstanding academic performance. The ministry has awarded around EUR 93,000 to the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol for the academic year 2019/20. Unfortunately, no formal award ceremony was able to take place in Kufstein because of the extraordinary situation in the current academic year caused by COVID-19 and the associated safety measures. The University Management takes this opportunity to give its hearty congratulations to the students once again.
“Awarding ambitious students for their performance is truly a happy experience for me every time. Unfortunately, we were not able to personally hand over the certificates this year. However, the value of the academic achievements and the grants are still very noteworthy. It is a helpful contribution especially for those who finance their study program themselves. That is why I am delighted every year to give the scholarship holders an additional, well-deserved Christmas present from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research,” said FH Rector University of Applied Sciences Professor Dr. Mario Döller.
Awarding academic performance
All students in the academic year 2019/20 whose academic performance is better than the grade point average of 2.0 can apply for a merit-based scholarship. From all 24 study programs at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol, three students with the best grades who met these criteria received a grant in the past year.
Prize money for exceptional achievements
A maximum of three grants of 1,365.00 euros each were awarded per study program and organizational form (part-time/full-time).
