Advancing insights - the Nestpick Scholarship

We believe that students should think big and be bold.

The Nestpick scholarship supports students at any level developing ideas that will have a real impact and change the world. Whether you are studying for your bachelor's degree, a master's or are a Ph.D student we want to help you develop your thesis further.

Nestpick is based in Berlin, a cultural and academic hub with a rich history of debate and intellectual thinking. The city is one of the most prolific centres for higher education and research, not only in Germany but across Europe. More than 40 Nobel Prize winners are associated with the universities based here - a claim that few cities can compete with. In addition to its four public research universities, Berlin is home to more than 30 private, professional, and technical colleges (Hochschulen), offering a huge range of subjects. In 2016 over 175,00 students enrolled on courses here, and given Berlin's international reputation it can be no surprise that nearly 20% of these students have an international background.
