Selection procedure


Applicants will be informed of the results of the selection procedure immediately after the meeting of the Selection Committee. If you have been awarded a grant, fill in the “declaration of acceptance“ (Annahmeerklärung) attached to the notification of admission and send it to the International Office (DLE Internationale Beziehungen). For data protection reasons, we cannot give information regarding the awarding of grants over the telephone.
Compliance with the formal requirements of application implies no legal claim to financial support. Grants will be awarded according to competitive criteria and to availability of funds.


The grant will be paid in one or two instalments, either in January (October deadline), April (February deadline) or September (May deadline) to the designated account of an Austrian bank.


Not later than two months after the termination of the stay abroad, the report form, the report (progress report and personal experiences, 1-2 pages each) and the confirmation of stay (Aufenthaltsbestätigung) signed by the host institution must be sent to the International Office, either electronically or per mail.
