Amirana Scholarship for Future Doctors at Heidelberg University in Germany 2021

Heidelberg University in Germany is inviting applicants for Amirana Scholarship for international students in the 2021/22 academic session.

Thanks to a 2016 initiative by two alumni from the USA, there is now a new financial support option for studying Medicine and Dentistry at Heidelberg University: the Amirana Scholarship.

The scholarship was set up following a donation from Dr Annelene J. Amirana and Dr Mahomed T. Amirana. They married after meeting in Heidelberg in the 1950s during their medical studies and subsequently worked as doctors for many years in the United States.

Worth of Award

The Amirana Scholarship Fund offers sholarships to medical and dentistry students experiencing financial hardships through no fault of their own as well as future students in these fields who cannot finance their studies without assistance.


  • Scholarships are available for university applicants for Medicine and Dentistry from developing countries and newly industrializing nations
