Helmut Veith Stipend at Vienna University of Technology.


The Helmut Veith Stipend was founded to promote and motivate female students to pursue a computer science degree or to get their master’s degree at the TU Wien programs that are taught in English.

The scholarship positions are giving female students the opportunity to study at the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) which is an initiative of Technische Universität Wien.

In addition, the VCLA is aiming to raise the aspirations of young people for academic pursuits and to increase the awareness of the impact that research studies can do in areas such as mathematics, logic, philosophy, and computer science.

  • Applicants must be eligible for admission to one of the master’s programs in computer science at TU Wien that are taught in English. In 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 those are:
    • Master in Logic and Computation
    • Master in Business Informatics
    • European Master in Computational Logic
    • Master in Computer Engineering (Technische Informatik)
    • Master in Data Science
    • Master in Media and Human-Centered Computing
  • 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

Additional Conditions:

  • Recipients of funding must be committed to demonstrating good progress during their studies, i.e.:
    • obtain at least 25 ECTS credits from the respective master’s curriculum per term on average since the beginning of their master’s studies (the deadlines are April 30 for the winter term and November 30 for the summer term), and
    • achieve a grade average of at most 1.5.
  • Recipients of funding have to reside in Austria during term time for the duration of their studies. Exceptions and temporary interruptions of the stay during term time (e.g., for internships or research visits) are subject to approval.
  • The stipend is provided for the duration of the master’s program (subject to the conditions listed above), for up to 2 years.
