Selection Criteria

Please note that your application can only be considered if you submit a properly completed application form along with all the required documents.

The selection of students for scholarship support is done by a committee on the basis of the written application documents. The main selection criteria are that the student is likely to complete their qualification within the scholarship period, financial need, and very good grades. Applicants who have not previously received a STIBET scholarship will be given preference.

A properly completed application does not guarantee scholarship support.

The applicants are informed in writing about the outcome of the application process by the International Office.

We ask applicants to refrain from contacting us in advance.

Incomplete applications as well as applications which were not received in due time will not be considered!
