International Hanns Eisler Scholarships in Germany
Eisler-Haus Leipzig e. V. is actively providing financial support for international students through its Hanns Eisler Scholarships for the academic year 2022-2023.
The international scholarship is aimed at composers with a university degree or equivalent qualification. The program is intended to create a platform for the further development and promotion of New music. The program is conceived and organized by Eisler-Haus Leipzig e.

On February 23, 2016, the Eisler-Haus Leipzig e.V. was founded in the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. On April 25, 2016, they were entered into the register of associations of the city of Leipzig and received recognition of charitable status from the tax office. Hanns Eisler was an Austrian composer. He is best known for composing the national anthem of East Germany, for his long artistic association with Bertolt Brecht, and the scores he wrote for films.
Why should you apply for this programme? Hanns Eisler’s enormously rich musical output impresses with an almost exuberant stylistic diversity. They are a group of volunteer citizens, including composers, singers, music students, musicologists, journalists and publicists, and as institutional members of the International Hanns Eisler Society in Berlin and the Gewandhaus in Leipzig.
