Funding brief: zis scholarships are open to young people of all nationalities. It doesn’t mater if you’re still at school, doing an apprenticeship, studying or taking a gap year. The age limit is 21, so you can’t have turned 21 by the time you start your journey. You don’t need to have any specific prior knowledge or experiences abroad to participate.
Your application has a good chance of succeeding if we are persuaded by your interest in your chosen topic and you have a realistic journey idea. They recommend that you download the fact sheet for scholarship holders.
● Your project – 3 steps to the journey of your life
Because this is your journey, it’s up to you to decide which travel topic best suits you. Whether it’s art, nature, sports or politics – it’s your interests, talents and inclinations that matter. Tell us in your application what it is that connects you to your topic and what links your chosen country to it. Depending on your topic, you can also create a piece of art or craft instead of a written project report or choose an alternative way of documentation. If you want to do this, please let us know what you have in mind and tell us about your experiences and background knowledge in this field. This also applies to photo documentations. As the topic of the journey should serve your personal development, we reject topics on principle which only seek to deepen the field of study.
● Before the journey
If your application is shortlisted, you will no longer be on your own in the further preparation of your trip. You will be supported and personally mentored by a person who has extensive experience with zis journeys. They will give you tips, answer your questions and, ultimately, approve your scholarship as soon as your plans have matured.
● During the journey
As soon as you‘ve started your journey, you’ll have to stand on your own two feet. You’ll organise your time, manage your expenses and find your contacts. Your topic will be your key to the country and its people. You will gather impressions and experiences and visit people who have something to say about your topic. You’ll see how it’s possible to immerse yourself in the culture of your host country in only 4 weeks. Your travel diary, in which you’ll capture your daily impressions, will be your constant companion.
● After the journey
After your return, you‘ll have three months to summarise your impressions and experiences in a project report, a piece of art or craft or an alternative documentation. You should report on what you discovered about your topic on the journey, and how the trip changed your perspective and views. You can be creative and illustrate your topic with pictures or other material. Producing an artistic piece of work is another great way of capturing your experiences and questions surrounding your journey topic.
