Christian Fiedler Scholarship 2024

LEIZ is pleased to declare the awarding of the Christian Fiedler Scholarship for the year 2024. This scholarship continues to honor the memory of Christian Fiedler, a remarkable master's student whose passion for academia and student life at ZU left a lasting legacy. Endowed by the Fiedler family, the scholarship aims to support students in their academic pursuits and projects, especially during challenging times.


This year, the scholarship enables three outstanding students—David von Brück, Johannes Sonneborn, and Arushi Chakravarty—to participate in the Transcultural Student Research Group trip to South Africa in July. Their dedication to transcultural understanding and research excellence embodies the spirit of Christian Fiedler, who was deeply engaged in fostering academic growth and collaboration.


Since its inception in 2020, the Christian Fiedler Scholarship has been instrumental in facilitating students' academic progression and in fostering the realization of innovative student-led projects. It stands as a testament to Christian Fiedler's vibrant involvement in the academic and communal life at ZU.


We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the recipients and anticipate the valuable contributions they will make to transcultural research through their forthcoming journey.

Prof. Dr. Josef Wieland, Dr. Jessica Geraldo Schwengber, David von Brück, Johannes Sonneborn, and Arushi Chakravarty.
