About the Zeidler MINT Maker Scholarship Programme

Every year the Zeidler MINT Maker Scholarship Programme enables 300 selected students of the Technical University of Munich to access the high-tech workshop UnternehmerTUM MakerSpace. In practical and project-based modules of selected teaching programmes and on freely-based projects the students can apply and deepen their academic knowledge. Using industrial machinery and tools and the latest software, the scholarship holders work on their own projects and products. In this way the students themselves become design-aware and creative and discover their own abilities and interests.
