To the Applicant

Please check carefully if you fulfill the following requirements of the EU Commission.


 Fellows must be nationals of a European Union Member State, or be able to provide proof of
 having resided in a Member State for at least the last five years prior to their selection by the
 host. Fellows should ensure that they are able to fulfil the visa requirements for Germany.


 Fellows may not carry out their fellowship in the country of their nationality and his/her recent
 center of activity. Hosts cannot appoint researchers who have carried out their normal
 activity in the country where the research is going to take place for more than 12 months in
 the two years immediately prior to their selection by the
 host. Fellows may not carry out their fellowship at the University of Munich, if they normally
 pursue their doctoral studies anywhere in Germany.


 At the time of selection the fellow must be 35 years old or less, with allowances being made
 for time spent caring for children and for compulsory military or civil service.

 Research Experience

 The scheme is directed to postgraduate researchers pursuing doctoral studies in a subject
 area similar to that of the Training Site. The stay must be directly relevant to the doctoral
 studies pursued. The stay at the Marie Curie Training Site must be
 recognized as an integral part of the doctoral studies in writing by the research supervisor of
 the doctoral studies in the home university.
