Prerequisites and Applications
Interested candidates must send a written inquiry to the foundation with information about the area of study and field of activity (for scholarship grants) or the location and subject of the event (for travel allowances). The supporting documentation for the application may possibly be sent after that.
German and international Ph.D. candidates at German institutes of higher learning as well as German Ph.D. candidates at foreign institutes of higher learning are eligible.
The preconditions of a grant award are that the funding be used for the development of a subject in business and economics or the engineering sciences (excluding architecture and civil engineering), a permanent supervisor relationship is established, a certificate of qualification attested to by the supervisor, and proof of need (documented by the income tax return of the parents, or perhaps that of the applicant and marriage partner).
