Congratulations to our Fellowship Students in the Summer Semester 2020!

Léa Amelie Baur, Severina Stainos and Jakub Doseth, first semester students in the Bachelor’s program, are pleased to receive a Förderkreis scholarship.


The Bachelor student Sophie Kepplin is studying one semester at the University of Art in Linz, Raphaela Weihpratziky, also a student in the Bachelor’s program, at the École Nationale Supérieure D’Arts de Paris-Cergy. Both of them are happy to receive support through Erasmus+. Leo Sanchez-Diallo, a Master’s student at the École Nationale Supérieure D’Arts de Paris-Cergy, is spending a semester at the Merz Akademie thanks to a grant through Erasmus+.
