The ÖGG was founded as the national society of the ISRM (International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering) in 1968. The ÖGG actively promotes scientific research on the subsoil and its behaviour, as well as supports interactions with related institutions. A special emphasis is placed on encouraging all persons, institutions and authorities engaged in civil engineering to exchange their experiences with one another, as well as to promote improvements in construction and design methods. ÖGG publishes regulations and guidelines as well as the journal "Geomechanics and Tunneling" and further organises the annual Geomechanics Colloquium in Salzburg.

A jury of experts from TU Graz draws up an initial list of awardees. The final award is made by the scholarship provider (ÖGG). In addition to a high level of professional qualification, value is placed on a good general education/open-mindedness, interest/creativity and independent thinking.
All complete applications submitted by students who have been admitted to the master's programme since the winter semester 2023/24 and have thus far provided excellent proof of academic achievement will be considered. Any admission requirements must, therefore, be met. Upon receipt of the scholarships, proof of academic achievement must be provided after one year.
The generous support from ÖGG has allowed me to enter a new country and receive better higher education. The scholarship enables me to strengthen my research potential by making me financially independent, so that I can spend my valuable time taking part in interesting projects. I am also excited that I will get to join the academic conferences held for young members of ÖGG.
