How Do I Apply?


Online Application

You can only apply for an Education Fund Scholarship online.

The online application phase for one of the scholarships for the 2021/22 funding period is being extended due to the pandemic this year and will run from June 1 through July 25, 2021.

During that time, you will find the corresponding link to the online application form here.


Application is only possible via the online form in the month of June.

The exact time of your application during this time period does not affect the awarding of the scholarship. After you have submitted your application, you will receive more information about  the further course of the selection process. Selection does not begin until after the application deadline.


How to Apply the Right Way

We guide you through the application process. For most of the information we ask you for, you will find a mouse over text in the online application, which will give you additional information. Please also read the FAQs and our guidelines very carefully.
