in February 2022 on the awarding of the first application round.
in September 2022 on the applications for the second call for applications.
The projects are evaluated regarding to their feasibility and prospects of success, their significance and, if applicable, their interdisciplinary or international orientation. Social aspects, biographical hurdles and the individual potential of the students in their current circumstances can be taken into account.
Attempts to deceive by applicants will lead to immediate exclusion from the application process. A further application is not possible in this case.

The awarding is subject to the availability of funds in the funding year 2022/23. The number of the up to 6 scholarships announced may be adapted accordingly.
