Scholarships offered by the Rhineland-Palatinate foundation

The state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the state's universities have established the Rhineland-Palatinate Scholarship Foundation to support young
academics. As a result, Worms University of Applied Sciences is able to promote and support students at our university on an annual basis.
