Benefits of AAI/One World Postgraduate Scholarship

Partial grants.

No scholarships are awarded for:

  • Studies at private universities
  • Postgraduate study programmes (“Lehrgänge”, e.g. “Universitätslehrgang” or “Fachhochschullehrgang”) or other non-degree certificate programmes
  • Applicants  with a residence title other than “student”
  • Non-degree programme students („außerordentliche Studierende“)
  • Short term visits and exchange programmes

Requirements for AAI/One World Postgraduate Scholarship

  • Nationality of a non-European developing country (country list)
  • Admission to a Master or PhD programme at a university or university of applied sciences in Salzburg or Tyrol (Uni Salzburg, Uni Innsbruck, FH Salzburg, MCI, FH Kufstein)
  • For PhD students: approved disposition
  • Age limit: Master studies max. 30 years (mothers: 35 years), PhD studies max. 35 years (mothers: 40 years) at the time of application
  • Residence permit “student”

The scholarship will contribute to exercise the right to education for those critical and intellectual young people who encounter poor conditions in their home countries. These aspects still apply more strongly to women. Regarding applications from equally qualified individuals, priority is given to female students.

Selection Criteria:

  • Financial need: We consider own income, savings, other means of support, profession and income of parents in order to select students who would hardly be able to successfully finish their studies without financial support.
  • Evidence of good progress in studies: Good study progress documented by transcript of records of current and past studies. In programmes without entry exams, students who have already completed at least one semester at an Austrian university have a distinctive advantage.
  • Interest in development and according specialisation in studies: Prospective awardees are expected to show a strong interest in development related issues, which is supposed to be reflected in the choice of study fields, prior work experience, voluntary activities etc.
