Our mission statement

Evangelisches Studienwerk Villigst takes on Christian responsibility for the world through providing scholarship systems for gifted students. Here Evangelisches Studienwerk believes that talent with particular intellectual and creative skills obligates such people to use their gifts in a social, future-oriented way and in open communal approaches. Our complex and highly contradictory society needs committed intellectuals and decision makers, who are able to combine specialist, interdisciplinary and political discernment.

Individual education and a willingness to ethically reflect upon the modern societal issues and knowledge developments are essential prerequisite for this. Evangelisches Studienwerk supports young people who are willing to face up to these challenges of the future in all fields of society in the Protestant tradition.

Please find more detailed information about our scholarships for students, doctoral students or students from Eastern European countries on the following pages.
