Evaluation of top-scho­l­ar­ships in Lower Austria

3s was commissioned by the province of Lower Austria to evaluate its ‘TOP Stipendien NÖ’ (TOP scholarships Lower Austria) that support excellent and labour market oriented study programmes in demand by the job market.

The ‚top-scho­loar­ships‘ were installed in 2001, in 2008/09 they focussed on sup­porting inno­va­ti­ve study program concepts in  as well as on a stronger link between higher education and inno­va­ti­ve deve­lo­p­ments within Lower Austria.

The eva­lua­ti­on process included:

  • Positioning of the support programme by national com­pa­ri­son: research of per­son­lised support pro­gram­mes on a local and national scale within the STEM sector;
  • Positioning of the TOP support programme in com­pa­ri­son with Germany and Switzerland: research of best practices on per­so­na­li­sed STEM support in Germany and Switzerland;
  • Expert inter­views on selected examples of best practice.
