4.5 Eligibility criteria

Grants have different eligibility criteria. Make sure that you are eligible before starting. Given that applications take time -and in some occasions money too (e.g.. translation costs, postage, purchase of stationary, etc.)- to complete, it is important to check thoroughly whether you fit the profile or not. The most common criteria are the following - however many more may apply to grants linked to a particular institution:

  • academic merit
  • financial need
  • nationality
  • age group
  • duration and continuity of residence
