"The Cusanuswerk assigns fellowships to particularly gifted students and doctoral candidates of catholic faith from all disciplines. Besides the funding the support entails an interdisciplinary training programme, which aims at encouraging debates on the roles of science and belief or society and the Church. The financial support includes an individually calculated monthly grant and a monthly standard payment toward the cost of study or research. If necessary, family allowances and contributions to child care are granted. Moreover, the Cusanuswerk funds internships, language courses and periods of study abroad. A large number of cross-disciplinary educational events and discussion groups provide non-material support."
