At the deadline, the applicant should not  have been working on his/her project for more than 6 months.

We do not support Applied research, such as biotechnological  and pharmaceutical development and studies on the course of diseases or the  treatment of symptoms; botanical and prokaryotic investigations  unless they are of general biological importance; education,  we can support only research. Fellowships therefore cannot be used during the  course and rotation phase of PhD  programmes, but only for the  duration of the PhD project. -Furthermore, the PhD fellowships cannot be  used to supplement inadequate funding from other institutions or earned incomes,  to bridge temporary financial difficulties or to complete investigations already  sponsored by other institutions.
