The fellowships are awarded by a selection committee. Half of the committee members are nominated by the OeAW and half from Universities Austria (uniko).
The selection committee creates a shortlist of applications to be sent for international review. Two reviews are obtained for each application; the commission decides whom to award the fellowships on the basis of these reviews.
The selection procedure takes approx. 5 months.
It is not possible to reapply after a proposal has been rejected.
The committee’s decision is final.
