For further details please refer to "Who can apply?". The peer-review-based selection process is highly competitive. Applicants should therefore be outstanding in all three selection criteria.

In addition, fellowship holders are offered personal support, seminars to discuss their projects, communication training and alumni meetings, and thus can become part of a worldwide network.
