Can I apply for the Global Entrepreneurship Summer School even though I have already participated in one of the EIISS Summer Schools before?
Since 2012 we have a special deal with alumni participants. If you are a 2012 “virtual” participant please apply again if your team didn’t move on with the idea. If your team still works on the idea we will get back to you individually via email.
Is there a limit to the number of students from any university/country/continent?
No, there are no participation limits. Students will be selected by the quality of their applications. Nevertheless, at least two students from each of our four Munich based Universities will participate.
When will I know that I am invited to join the Global Entrepreneurship Summer School or not?
We will inform everybody in the middle of the year about their application status.
What are the evaluation criteria for being selected?
Your CV and Motivational Letter should convince us especially with the following:
- You think and act Entrepreneurial at the highest level
- You are deeply motivated to find answers to the most challenging problems in our global society
- You are highly engaged in student initiatives or in any other way
- You are fluently in English and are doing pretty well in your field of studies
- You are committed to peace and act responsible
- In addition, we expect you to have strong “team-playing” skills, be open-minded, interested in working in international and interdisciplinary teams and for sure you should also have a great sense of humor.
Can I also send in my application via email or other channels?
No. Only applications which are submitted through the usage of the application form on our website will be considered for the evaluation. Even additional material that you don’t submit through our application form won’t be considered to have a fair evaluation process for everybody. If your browser doesn’t work please try first another one before writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for further assistance.
Will I have to apply in German or English?
Please fill out the entire application in English. Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications in German (or other languages).
Do I need to attach any diplomas or references to my application?
You can and even should mention grades and other achievements in your CV. However, you don’t need to hand in the documents additionally.
