Application Tip #115
What do I do if I have a burning question regarding my submitted application, but the program officer managing my application is in Germany and has already left the office for the day?

In the event you've submitted an application to one of our programs administered out of our Bonn offices, such as the RISE programs or our Postgraduate Study Scholarship in the fields of fine art, music, architecture, or performing arts, you're still welcome to contact us in the event you have questions regarding your application. We will try our best to assist you while our colleagues in Bonn are out of office or already gone for the day and help find answers to your questions or solutions to your problems.

Fun Fact
Did you know...

... that Germans practice a form of fortune telling on New Years Eve? Bleigießen , or lead pouring as it is literally translated, is a Sylvester (German term for New Year's Eve, named for the feast day of Saint Sylvester) tradition with roots in Ancient Greece. Before midnight on New Year’s Eve, families and friends gather around a candle whose flame they use to melt small pieces of lead on a spoon. The molten lead is then dropped in its liquid form into a bowl of cool water and, upon hardening, takes a shape. Everyone then analyzes the new form their lead has taken and interprets it as a sign or symbol for the new year.
