          The Internship Stipend

• The Internship stipend is a financial help for
  students who cannot afford an internship abroad
  (or - if St. Petersburg is not their hometown - in St.
  Petersburg)
• It is not to be seen as reward – although good
  performance in the programme is one of the
  prerequisites to get the stipend.
• This fact (that the stipend is not a reward but a
  financial help) should be made clear towards the
  students in order to make sure that everybody
  checks carefully how much money he/she can
  contribute on her own.
           Deadline to apply
• about 2 months before the internships are
  supposed to start to make sure to have
  enough time for the selection process and the
  money transfer (which can take about 14
  days)
• selection process is organised by the Head of
  Internship who chooses and contacts the
  members of the selection commission.
• then, the list of selected students with their
  bank accounts and cost projections has to be
  sent to Bielefeld CGES that is in charge of
  the money transfer
