Study Local or Abroad?International

Have you ever thought about what it feels like to study in China or Brazil? How about Mexico or the USA or Spain? During a school year abroad with the ZEISS Scholarship for children of employees, you will have the opportunity to experience one  of many countries up close.

Your chance to develop with the ZEISS Scholarship for children of employees

Experience a new culture, meet new people, adjust to new situations: anyone between the ages of 15 and 18 studying abroad does more than just learn a new language – they learn a lot about themselves. Let yourself be inspired.

During your exchange year, you will live with a host family and attend school with students your age. You will become part of another culture and see the country from an entirely new perspective. You will not only learn a new language, but will also develop a new understanding of the world. With the ZEISS scholarship program for children of employees, we are once again helping children of ZEISS Group employees spend a year abroad.

How can you apply?

Children of employees  around the world can apply for the scholarship.  10 scholarships are awarded every year. The recipients  are selected together with our partner, AFS.

Where can you go?

ZEISS sponsors a school year abroad in the AFS host countries of Brazil, China, Germany, France, India, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and  the USA.

  • Travel to and from the host destination
