Uni Leipzig Summer School Scholarships

The DAAD collaborates with German universities to organize a variety of summer schools in Germany as an additional benefit for scholarship holders of the In-Country/In-Region Programme.

One of these is the IDEA Summer School, which is provided in association with the Leipzig University, Germany-based SEPT Competence Center (Small Business Promotion and Training).

Uni Leipzig Summer School Scholarships

The IDEA Summer School aims to give you the tools you need to organize and carry out your knowledge transfer programs.

As a result, the Summer School’s core is its project ideas.

Three areas of knowledge transfer will receive the majority of their attention: innovation, entrepreneurship (the development of business ideas), and teaching.

The Summer School gives you the option to focus on one of the three channels by including a suitable project idea with your application.

You are supported to advance the project based on the input of the appropriate week by receiving one intensive coaching day per week in Leipzig.

Each track seeks to give you the tools you need to further develop your own project idea as a result of the Summer School.

How to Apply

To learn more about German application standards, carefully read the content here and watch the SEPT tutorial.

Register on the Innolytics Platform. The IDEAS Staff will then manually assign you to the IDEAS Application Area. This extra step, which can take some time, is necessary to prevent unauthorized access to your idea.

Fill out the application survey. To coordinate the application process with DAAD and the other SP/DL Summer Schools, the specifics are necessary.

Enter the information about your idea by logging into Innolytics. Take your time and proceed cautiously.

The selection process is based on the concept, your personal capacity presentation, and the motivational statement that you have provided here.

Once you have completed those steps you can await the result of our selection process.

Selection Process

The project idea’s quality (innovativeness, viability, and impact), the estimated value addition through SEPT during the IDEA Summer School, and the applicant’s suitability to carry out the project will all be taken into account in the selection process.

The application’s formality will also be taken into consideration. The candidates will be informed of the findings of the selection meeting by the end of April 2024.

The selection committee, which consists of prominent higher education management experts and DAAD officials, meets in March.
