FAQ


How are the scholarship holders selected?

The Board of IG Wien decides in each case (based on the completeness of the application documents and fulfillment of the formal application criteria) jointly, unanimously in the course of a selection process lasting several days.


What should I pay special attention to in the layout of the CV and text, as well as in answering the questions?

Stick exactly to the information given. We explicitly do not want any photos in the CV, the texts should not exceed the maximum length and the application should in any case reach us in time. We give positive weight to social, cultural and political engagement as well as professional experience of our applicants. Furthermore, we refer to our guiding principle of diversity, which we want to carry to Alpbach as well as to live in our IG and its composition.

And last but not least: You and your personality are asked! It is not necessary to prove knowledge or to meet supposed (academic) requirements. Rather, when answering the questions and in your text, bring in your personal associations, inspirations, your personal knowledge, your experiences and your views and backgrounds in an uncomplicated way and at your own discretion!


Does IG Wien award partial scholarships?

No, a scholarship of IG Wien covers the entire period of the European Forum Alpbach. IG Wien does not award "partial scholarships" for the participation in individual events (e.g.: Business Talks, Architecture Talks...).
