Entrepreneurial Awards 2018
We want to promote female mathematicians. That is why the Department awards the Entrepreneurial Awards as part of the "Global Challenges for Women in Math Science" program. Apply with your project for 2020!


It is our aim to create role models in science and especially to support young female researchers in developing their scholarly potential. Therefore, the Department of Mathematics at TUM annually offers funding for research visits and trips, as well as other research-related projects and activities in mathematics, provided that female mathematicians are involved.

Application for the Entrepreneurial Awards

For the coming year the Entrepreneurial Program will have a total of 20,000 Euro to distribute amongst successful applicants from the Department of Mathematics who wish to

  • invite female guest speakers,
  • travel to academic conferences, or
  • make a research stay at an external university or institution.

The program also welcomes applicants from the Department of Mathematics for funding in other areas of mathematical research, such as organising workshops, acquiring materials necessary for research, etc. The participation of female scholars is required, and international co-operation is strongly encouraged.

Apply until 1st December 2019 and submit your project for 2020! Eligible is any female faculty member at junior or senior level. Further information about the various formats and terms of participation you will find under Global Challenges for Women in Math Science.


Awards for the best female students

Also funded by the Department of Mathematics’ program "Global challenges for Women in Math Science" are the Achievement Awards. The award ceremony will take place on the occasion of the graduation ceremony in the winter semester 2019/20. Recipients are selected automatically on the basis of their exam results.
