Out of all applicants the selection committee selects applicants who have demonstrated the capacity to make a significant contribution to the academic excellence of the Faculty. This criterion can be assessed on the basis of the academic transcript, a writing sample (e.g. Bachelor’s thesis), a motivational letter, recommendation letters, and/or a Skype interview. Please be aware of the fact that the selection committee will only start their procedure after the first of April 2019. The committee strives to assign the scholarship to one of the candidates before the first of May.

If there are more excellent applicants than scholarships available, the selection committee prioritizes the applications using societal contribution and contribution to internationalization policy as additional criteria. These criterion allow the committee to select applicants who can demonstrate extra-curricular activities in their motivation letter and CV, such as volunteer work whilst studying, and a clear vision about how a second degree contributes to their ability to take up responsible positions in the Church or society.

By contribution to internationalization policy we define students that might be future ambassadors for the Faculty in their home countries, for example, students that are coming from academic institutions with which our Faculty has currently a partnership, or those that are affiliated with the academic institutions, organizations, and networks that the Faculty would like to engage with in the future. This criterion can be assessed on the basis of the applicant’s CV, letter of motivation, and/or the applicant’s letters of recommendation.
