We kindly inform you that due to the development of the Covid-19 pandemic, the deadline for applications in the START program (edition 2021) is postponed from November 2 to December 18, 2020. The date of announcing winners of the competition will most likely also be postponed. We will inform about the new announcement date in the first quarter of 2021.
In order to ensure equal opportunities for all candidates in the competition evaluation process, we kindly inform you that the information contained in the START scholarship application should refer to achievements not later than on November 2, 2020, which particularly refers to research achievements and publications.
All other elements of the application process and the competition procedure remain unchanged.
Candidates are encouraged to submit their applications on an ongoing basis.
