You may send either a copy of your birth certificate or a scanned copy of your passport data page (i.e. only the page with your picture and information). Please just send ONLY ONE of the documents indicated.
After you finish applying, you will receive an e-mail confirming your application and the documents submitted. If your referee wishes to submit your reference individually, please make sure to provide him/her with the reference number indicated in the e-mail confirmation. If you directly upload your reference, please note that you will not be required to add a reference number.
You can submit your application by completing the online registration form above, and uploading the required documents. We highly recommend early submission of applications because it is our experience that heavy uploading during peak deadline hours often clogs the system. We cannot be held responsible should applications fail to reach us at such times. If you have not received an automatic receipt confirmation with a reference number after sending in your online registration form, please complete the registration procedure again. Please note that mail or e-mail applications are no longer accepted. Please make sure that all your files are within the required size limit, otherwise you will not be able to upload them.
The referee is requested to sign the form, scan it and save it in pdf format. The reference can be uploaded by the student or e-mailed by the referee. The referees of the selected student will be contacted prior to the disbursement of the scholarship.
