Advancing insights - €1.5k nestpick Scholarship

Advancing insights - the nestpick Scholarship

We believe that students should think big and be bold.

Do you have a great idea that you want to develop further in your thesis? Then apply for our scholarship! We're offering €1,500 to a bachelor’s, master's or Ph.D student plus accommodation and a residency in our Berlin offices. 

A non-repayable, one-time grant of €1,500. This can be used as you see fit: to support the writing of your thesis, to fund field or research trips (such as visiting a particular museum, gallery or library outside of your country of residence). On top of this, we invite you to work on your thesis in our offices in Berlin for a month. We’ll provide you with a furnished room to live in, of course!
