Open Call for Application

For the winter call of the scholarship program, HGS MathComp has reversed its usual policy. We will offer up to ten projects defined by members of the school. The application to these projects is an open call for application.

The graduate school will assess all applicants and will invite up to three candidates per project to participate in a candidate workshop in Heidelberg in April 2014. At this candidate workshop the selection committee will decide which candidates will be offered a scholarship in the program.

More information on the scholarship program are available here.
