Marshall Plan Scholarship (MPS) for Science and Engineering Students

The Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation invites U.S. and Austrian universities of applied sciences and technical universities to take part in this program and nominate their students or students from partner institutions who are interested in doing academic research abroad. Participants will be asked to hand in a research paper or documentary report of their research work.

It is the Foundation’s goal to see more Austrians and Americans participate in exchange programs, thereby increasing mutual understanding and image.
