How is it decided whether I get a scholarship?

Electronic pre-selection and evaluation of the departments

For each faculty, an electronic pre-selection is first carried out in the Study Service Center. The electronic preselection takes into account the criteria of performance, social or societal commitment, and personal and social circumstances.

The best applications are forwarded anonymously to the respective jury in the department. The jury evaluates the overall potential of the application in accordance with StipV §2 paragraph 2 and thus determines a ranking for the award of the scholarships.
