Three scholarships for students of the NBS group

The Neuromorphic Behaving Systems Group is proud to announce that three former and current students of the group are receiving scholarships to continue their studies.

Umakshi Sajnani will be supported with the "Aid of Final degree" scholarship for international students at Bielefeld University. After finishing a project within the group, Umakshi is now pursuing her master thesis with Elisabetta Chicca. The scholarship granted by the Rotary Clubs Bielefeld and the Association to support international students in Bielefeld (ViSiB) aims to aid international students during their thesis writing.

Ole Richter received a scholarship from the oldest and largest German Academic Scholarship Foundation "Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes e.V." for his stay at the Institute for Neuroinformatics at UZH and ETHZurich. Ole is a former bachelor student of the group and we are happy that our interdisciplinary research on neuromorphic systems gave him the opportunity to continue his research as a master student in Zurich.

Philipp Klein received the "Deutschlandstipendium" scholarship from the "Stiftung Studienfonds OWL". Philipp is currently working as a scientific assistant with the group. The scholarship is partly funded by the German federal government and partly by private and industrial sponsors. The main idea of the scholarship is to support students at the five universities in East Westphalia-Lippe not only financially but also by providing early contacts to companys within the area.
