Labor Market Scholarships (AMS) provide assistance to individuals who meet the necessary eligibility requirements and wish to pursue continuing education that will benefit the labor market or improve their employability.

The regulation for labor market scholarships stipulates that further education must be necessary, appropriate and justifiable. Whether these criteria are met is assessed individually for each application. Labor market scholarships are therefore generally open to all participants.
