Selected international participants will receive a travel stipend (fixed rates for the respective country you are travelling from)
Please note, students are requested to present a poster of their former research experience during the first week!
In the selection process, great emphasis is put on the letter of motivation, publications, prizes, stipends, research experience, references and personality.
Successful participants in the summer academy (evaluation of poster presentation, lab protocol, evaluation by the supervisors of lab rotation) can achieve up to 6 ECTS credit points. If supervisors of lab rotations and lecturers have a positive impression of the students and if he/she is interested in doing a PhD at MHH, "LISA students" could go into a kind of "fast track" selection of HBRS. The candidates could apply to one of the PhD programmes by 1 April of the current or following years, or if lucky get directly a PhD position here after having attended LISA. The certificate "LISA student" would in any case directly lead to the second step in our application processes if all criteria (exam certificates etc.) are fulfilled. Students could be regarded as "pre-matched" with a supervisor if desired. However, there is no guarantee that everybody is accepted for PhD.
