6. The scholarship
The scholarship takes the form of a credit of 3,000 Euro for the ÖJAB hostel charges for each of the three successful applicants. This is equivalent to the average annual accommodation costs for an academic year. The beneficiary of the scholarship can use the credit at the ÖJAB hostel of their choice for the upcoming accommodation period. The scholarship will be formally presented at a small award ceremony in Vienna.
By submitting their application, applicants confirm that they accept the conditions published online at http://www.oejab.at/huawei-stipendium in German and English language governing the award criteria for the Huawei scholarship.
All applicants expressly agree to feature in any public communications activities required as part of media relations work (press photos, press releases) carried out by Huawei and ÖJAB in the event that they are selected to receive the scholarship. The official award ceremony will take the form of a public press conference.
The scholarship is not transferable and is for personal use only.
Under the terms of the scholarship Huawei will cover the accommodation costs for an ÖJAB hostel. The credit may not be used retroactively. There is no cash equivalent.
If the recipient moves out of the hostel before the credit has been used in full, the remaining funds will be transferred to the next applicant in line.
