General Information about IGCS Schools












Since 2012, the IGCS has organized winter and summer schools. The schools aim to teach students interdisciplinary perspectives on different sustainability challenges.

The schools are held under the motto of one of our IGCS focus areas and are organized by the respective area coordinators and their partners. The itinerary is about two weeks long and consists of lectures, discussions, group work and field trips.

The winter schools take place at IIT Madras in Chennai in February / March while the summer school takes place at one German partner university in July.

Up to 30 selected candidates will be supported with a scholarship that covers travel expenses and a lump sum. Application periods and procedures will be announced on this website and on our Facebook page.
