LMU doctoral candidates are eligible to apply.
Neediness is considered to exist, if — in the month of the application — the student does not receive a higher current income than the basic amount of the graduate scholarship specified in the Bayerischen Eliteförderungsgesetz (Bavarian Elite Promotion Act) including any income tax allowance according to § 3 para. 3 sentence 2 DV BayEFG which all together amounts to a total of 1,800 euros.
All the details relating to income must be documented (in the case of BAföG grants, a copy of the most recent notification is sufficient).
The grant may not be used for any other purpose. Only in exceptional cases will applicants be considered a second time. Each applicant will receive a written notification.
