Open to: outstanding female students in the field of computer science who pursue (or plan to pursue) one of the master’s programs in Computer Science at TU Wien taught in English
Benefits: students who are awarded the Helmut Veith Stipend, receive EUR 6000 annually for a duration of up to two years

Description

The Helmut Veith Stipend is dedicated to the memory of an outstanding computer scientist who worked in the fields of logic in computer science, computer-aided verification, software engineering, and computer security.

Eligibility

The Helmut Veith Stipend is awarded annually to outstanding female students in the field of computer science who pursue (or plan to pursue) one of the master’s programs in Computer Science at TU Wien taught in English. Applicants must be eligible for admission to a master’s program in Computer Science taught in English at TU Wien (currently Logic & Computation and Business Informatics; European Master´s Program Computational Logic for the duration of the recipient’s studies at TU Wien, Computer Engineering (Technische Informatik), Media and Human-Centered Computing, and Data Science). While applications for funding can be filed before or in parallel with the admissions process, the funding will only be awarded to applicants who have been unconditionally admitted to the master’s program. An application for funding does not replace the admissions process; neither does a conditional offer of funding entitle the applicant to study at TU Wien.

Female students who meet the following conditions are eligible to apply for the stipend:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Mathematics (Bologna first cycle) or equivalent degree
  • Extensive knowledge and interest in (at least one of) Helmut Veith’s areas of research:
    • Logic in Computer Science;
    • Formal Methods and Verification;
    • Foundations of Artificial Intelligence;
    • Complexity Theory;
    • Computer Security;
  • Proficiency in English.

Benefits

The stipend is dedicated to the memory of an outstanding computer scientist who worked in the fields of logic in computer science, computer-aided verification, software engineering, and computer security. Students who are awarded the Helmut Veith Stipend, receive EUR 6000 annually for a duration of up to two years. In addition, all tuition fees are waived. Recipients of funding must demonstrate good progress during their studies and will have to reside in Austria during term time for the duration of their studies.

Students are required to submit the following documents:

  • Cover Letter, describing the type of funding the student is applying for, and all other aspects the student deems relevant for the application;
  • Curriculum Vitae;
  • Motivation Letter, describing the reasons why the student wants to study in the program Logic and Computation, why funding is necessary, and with which groups of the faculty the student would be interested to work with during their master’s thesis and why;
  • Reports on university examinations (transcripts);
  • Diplomas and/or certificates (first degree, bachelor degree, or higher). If the final academic certificate is not yet available at the time of the application deadline, a preliminary certificate (indicating the type of degree and the expected graduation date) signed and stamped by the degree-awarding university must be provided;
  • Contact details of two referees (for letters of recommendation);
  • English language certificate (TOEFL or similar);
  • Copy of passport.
