  • a candidate should show a pronounced interest in the international dialogue within the academic community;
  • a candidate should demonstrate fluency in the English language;
  • the candidate should be motivated and willing to prepare himself/herself solidly for the Lindau meeting.

The process is a two-step procedure. At the first stage you should submit three items:

  • an individual tailor-made letter or letters of recommendation:

o Length: roughly one DIN A4 page/one standard letter size submitted as a pdf file;
o Language: English;
