The scholarship will provide a stipend of 400 EUR per month for two years (standard study period of Master’s studies).

However, in all programmes listed above there are tuition-waivers available for the best applicants (allocated based on admissions ranking lists).
In 2016, there will be 8 stipends available.
How to apply?
Applicants are required to meet all admission requirements and submit the full package of application documents (please find more information on the website of your chosen study programme).

Only well motivated candidates with good academic performance and properly prepared admission package will be considered. The students who have not graduated by the admission deadline are still eligible, provided that the rest of the admission documents are properly prepared.
