  • Undergraduate students must have completed at least two academic years when the scholarship period starts.
  • Students in the last year of a study programme are eligible to apply if they continue their studies in a postgraduate study programme shortly after completing their undergraduate degree. Please submit a letter of confirmation from your university as proof.
