Fellowships assignment procedure

Fellowship assignment will be based on a ranking list based on the applicants’ Curriculum Vitae. For each fellowship category, the best ranked applicants will be awarded the fellowships. Applicants are advised to read the Maximizing my chances section.
Fellowship recipients who do not confirm participation by the confirmation deadline published on this website will be excluded, and the fellowship will be reassigned to the next best-ranked applicant.
Fellowships that cannot be assigned for lack of eligible applicants meeting the minimum English knowledge and background requirements, can be assigned in a different fellowship category. The criterion of assigning the fellowships to the best possible ranking candidate will be followed.

NOTE: Recipients of any fellowship will be accommodated in shared rooms. Single-room accommodation for students can be arranged upon request and will determine an additional fee.
