Online application

We would be delighted to receive an application from you if you meet our eligibility criteria.
However, applications can only be made via our online portal.

We will review the applications carefully and will make our decision based on the motivation, performance, personal profile and financial situation of the applicant. We will invite candidates who satisfy the foundation’s requirements to a telephone interview. The foundation will then make a final decision concerning the award of a scholarship.

If possibilities for utilizing public funds for educational assistance exist (for example based on the German Federal Training Assistance Act/BAföG), such possibilities must be used first.

It is very important for us to be able to monitor the academic career and academic success of our scholarship recipients on an ongoing basis. The scholarship recipients report on the past semester and on their progress based on exams, term papers and other evidence of success. The financial assistance will only be continued if academic performances are very good and the financial situation is unchanged.
