Applicants have to submit a formal letter giving proof of their eligibility for the grant, motivate their interest in attending the summer school, and provide an explanation why other sources of funding (by local institutions) are not available or inadequate (maximally 1 page). The letter should also mentioned the advisor of the student and a statement that she/he supports this application (no additional letter of support is required).
Conditions for receiving a grant are eligibility, convincing evidence that funding is required and convincing motivations.
