Eligibility for International Max Planck Research School Scholarships:
Eligible Countries: International students are eligible to apply for these positions.
Entrance Requirements: To be eligible for this scholarship you must meet the following requirements:
Applicants should hold, or expect to hold, a degree in natural or computer science from a Masters, Diplom or equivalent program. Your current skills and knowledge should match well with your proposed area of doctoral research. To start in September 2018, all degree work must be finished by September 1, 2018. Feel free to contact the IMPRS Coordinator for additional information.
Bachelors-only applicants: In rare cases, exceptionally talented students holding only a Bachelors degree may be admitted to the IMPRS. You should hold a 4-years honors degree, have excellent grades and possess extensive and relevant research experience. In such cases, additional study requirements – to be fulfilled during the first year of IMPRS participation – may be assigned.
If you obtained your degree(s) outside the European Higher Education Area your application should include scores from the GRE General Test. To have your scores forwarded to us online, supply our institution code: 4791. Applicants with an Indian GATE score can supply this instead of, or as well as, the GRE. If you have TOEFL scores, these cannot replace the GRE scores but can be submitted in addition.
NOTE: We assess the application as a whole and therefore do not employ fixed criteria regarding the GRE scores. As a guide, successful applicants have usually scored above 152 on the GRE verbal test and above 155 on the quantitative test. Good test results do not guarantee admission to the program; rather they provide evidence for us to look seriously at the application.
