11.01.2021: International Office Scholarship application

How do I apply for scholarships from the International Office? Corona Special Scholarship or rather Study Scholarship? Which mistakes are an absolute no-go and what do I need to pay particular attention to? What documents do I need and what should I look out for in my letter of motivation?

Applying for scholarships is not easy! Therefore, in the course of this workshop, these and more questions will be answered and some of them will be worked out independently. At the end, you should feel confident to independently prepare and completely submit your application for the scholarships of the International Office.
