Application Tip #71
I am not currently living in my country of origin. Am I still eligible to apply for a scholarship?

Your country of permanent residence or the country in which you have lived in the year before your application is usually of relevance for the application procedure. We strongly recommend that you find out which scholarship programs are open to you and whether you have to apply from your country of residence or country of origin before beginning any application process .
