The scholarship requires a university degree. So if you already have your first degree (e.g. Bachelor’s) and are now studying for a Master’s degree, you are welcome to apply. Your application will not be accepted if you do not yet have a Bachelor’s degree.
You are welcome to contact your (former) lecturers directly and ask them to become mentors for your project. Alternatively, you can scroll through the mentors section on our website or contact the university’s startup service to help you find a mentor.
It is the scholarship holder’s responsibility to fulfill any legal obligations (taxes, social security contributions, health insurance, etc.) that may arise as a result of the scholarship. The legal obligations are not subtracted in advance.
