Special Offers for Female Students and Scientists

The advancement of woman is a matter of great importance at Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI). Especially in the MINT subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural science and technology), there continues to be a dramatic shortage of female graduates in Germany. Given the lack of specialists in these fields, HPI seeks to counteract this trend.

Special Offers for Female Students and Scientists

As part of its promotion of young women, HPI already seeks to particularly address girls in its special programs for pupils. By awarding scholarships and providing a support network for female high school and college students, HPI shows young women how easy it is to become part of a global network of computer scientists. At the same time, HPI demonstrates to young women how much in demand  they are for interesting jobs around the world.

Scholarships for Young Women in Computer Science

Several PhD and postdoc scholarships are offered annually within the HPI Research School.

Travel grants are available to attend the largest IT fairs for women worldwide: the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing and the European Women in Technology. Travel sponsorships are awarded to students in the German-language computer science study program.
