As part of Philipps-Universität Marburg's equal opportunity policy ("sustainable equal opportunities!") and with funds from the Female Professors Program of the Federal Government and the States, scholarships are usually awarded once a year for the completion of dissertations or habilitations as well as bridging positions for the continuation of an academic career at Philipps-Universität.

Through targeted support for women in all academic disciplines, Philipps-Universität Marburg aims to help increase the number of female scholars at all levels of qualification who are on their way to professorship and thereby make a positive contribution to the long-term integration of women in the academic system.

MARA coordinates the awarding of the scholarships and bridging positions in cooperation with the Gender Equality Officers. The Members Committee for Equal Opportunity Scholarships, which is composed of elected members of the MARA Board of Directors, decides on the awarding of scholarships.
