Selection procedure

The final decision on the awarding of the scholarship is made by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung after a preliminary selection by the University of Freiburg and review by a central scholarship commission. The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung is expected to send the acceptance letters to the applicants at the end of June or, in the case of the application deadline of November 1, in January.

The standardized selection procedure at the University of Freiburg usually includes a pre-selection by at least two reviewers, taking into account objectively ascertainable criteria from the written documents. In the further course of the procedure, selection interviews might be conducted. 

The selection criteria include, among others, the academic performance, language skills, the letter of recommendation, formal criteria regarding the application documents as well as the social and intercultural competence of the applicants.

The chances of the individual applicants depend on the quality and number of applications received as well as the available budget.
