Bavarian State Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts

Elite Network of Bavaria

Outstanding academic achievement is actively promoted and rewarded in Bavaria. The state is the first in Germany to offer a special awards scheme for exceptionally talented students – the Elite Network of Bavaria.
It supports students, graduates and postgraduate via its Elite Graduate Programmes, the Max Weber Programme for highly gifted students, International Doctorate Programmes, the Marianne-Plehn-Programme for highly qualified young scien­tists, and the International Junior Research Groups supporting young academics during their transition to academic in­de­pen­dence.
