A. Requirements for scholarship application

  • It is not possible to combine several study or research scholarships (with a funding period of at least 7 months) within one period of study (which ends with the completion of a Bachelor's, Master's, Diplom, state examination etc. and doctorate).

    Short research scholarships, specialised and language courses (e.g. university summer courses) and internships can be combined with all other types of scholarships.

    A short-term research fellowship may be utilised a maximum of once per calendar year and may not be utilised immediately after an annual fellowship. Research stays for doctoral candidates, work stays for artists and re-invitations can be utilised several times, but generally no more than once every three years.
