Public funding

The Abbe School of Photonics (ASP) is proud to attract an exceptionally high amount of public funding for supporting professional careers within the educational program. Substantial financial support for infrastructure and administration to benefit the ASP is provided by federal and state programs (Master Photonics and ProExcellence).

In addition, ASP gratefully acknowledges financial support for selected doctoral research projects from different types of scholarships from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the European Union, the Thuringian government, the Carl Zeiss Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), as well as from our industrial partners.
