  • your second studies (if you have studied a different subject in the first run)
  • part time studies parallel to an employment
  • trips back home to do research, trips in third countries

The maximum time period of the scholarship is based on the average time or number of semesters of your studies (Regelstudienzeit). The scholarship will at first be granted for one year and then to the end if the prerequisites have been fulfilled. Extensions in addition to the Regelstudienzeit are possible.
