Scholarships & Financing Depending on the country you come from and which subject you would like to study in Germany, there are different options for funding. Scholarships are offered by different institutions. The DAAD scholarship database for foreign students, graduate students and scientists contains extensive information and a variety of possibilities for those who are seeking financial support for their studies, research work or teaching assignments in Germany.

Pi Face: Artist Stewart Moore is painting pi to 2,500 decimal places. Pi is the mystical ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a circle. Barnes has been drawn to pi because of its intellectual history and philosophical implications. Humans have known about pi since they started using wheels 4,000 years ago.

Barnes says that the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Indians and other civilizations have all tried to crack pi’s mysteries.
