A new initiative for curious minds

School for Talents

We offer programs for talented students who want to expand their horizons as part of an interdisciplinary university network.

Passion for science

The School for Talents offers programs for academically strong students with a curious mind at the University of Stuttgart. There are two ways to get involved: You can choose from a number of different projects across the university that focus on deepening knowledge within your own scientific discipline, or apply to become a member of our annual program. The latter will give you the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary project team, to work on ideas of your own, and to explore topics beyond your regular course of studies.

The aim of the School for Talents is to spark passion for science at an early stage. School for Talents programs support students who are currently enrolled at the University of Stuttgart in developing their potential, and offer orientation for interested pupils who want to find out more about a specific course of study.

The School for Talents program is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) under Germany´s Excellence Strategy.

Finding and promoting talent is one of the principal tasks of our university. The School for Talents offers the space and freedom for highly motivated students to pursue their scientific curiosity.
