Selection procedure

The Heinrich Böll Foundation’s selection procedure for scholarship applicants consists of three stages:
– Submission of written application documents, including a personal reference on your social commitment and an expert reference from a university lecturer or, in the case of school leavers, a schoolteacher. The expert reference, preferably in a sealed envelope, may be submitted with the applications or submitted separately by the referee.
– An interview with a liaison lecturer, usually held at your university or near where you live (telephone interviews may also be held).
– Attendance at a selection workshop in Berlin consisting of a one-to-one interview and a group discussion.
At each stage only a small group is selected for the next stage. You will be informed in writing of the decision reached at each stage of the selection procedure.

Stage 1: Submission of written application documents
The key criteria for assessing written applications and admission to the next stage of the procedure are:
– Very good school or college/university academic record
– Social commitment and political interest
– Convincing reasons for applying to the Heinrich Böll Foundation

Stage 2: Interview with a liaison lecturer
At this stage a report by the liaison lecturer is added to your application. It is based on an interview of about an hour that the liaison lecturer (appointed by the Heinrich Böll Foundation) holds with you, as a rule, at the lecturer’s place of residence in Germany. In exceptional cases the liaison lecturer may agree to hold a telephone interview.
The interview with the liaison lecturer will address the applicant’s ability to study, his or her academic record and main areas of study, how he or she sees the study discipline in question and – in some cases –the applicant’s social commitment and political interest and awareness.

Stage 3: Selection workshop
On the basis of the liaison lecturers’ and other expert reports and the quality of the exposé applicants will be invited to attend the selection workshop.
The selection workshop consists of a structured one-to-one interview and a group discussion. The main focus of the workshop will be to assess the applicants’ personal abilities as described in our Mission Statement on Promoting Young Talent (see www.boell.de/scholarschips).
