The MOE Scholarship Exchange Program of the German Federal Environmental Foundation enables young scientists from Central and Eastern Europe to gather practically applicable experience for six to twelve months in Germany in the field of environmental protection. DBU activities in the MOE Scholarship Exchange Program now extend across 18 countries, from Estonia to Latvia, Lithuania, Oblast Kaliningrad, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo.
Beyond the advanced professional qualification of the scholarship recipients, the program’s goal is the creation of a long-term network of German, Central and Eastern European experts in the field of environmental and nature protection, and the elimination of obstacles to cooperation across all borders in this work. The international integration takes place through participation in the International Summer Academy and in seminars, in the awarding of the German Environmental Prize, and through the various alumni associations. In all MOE countries, an annual meeting of DBU alumni is held. The majority of applicants come from the disciplines of natural and engineering sciences. They generally favor attending German Universities and extramural research institutes. But also high on the wish list are German companies, associations, ministries and environmental authorities.
All scholarship awards are decided by a jury. After an initial internal vote, applicants with positive evaluations are invited to a selection interview in their home countries. The dates are provided to all candidates in a timely manner.
The scholarship amount is EUR 1,060 monthly. This scholarship is not subject to taxes or social security payments. Each scholarship recipient is also covered by health-accident and liability insurance. The DBU also supports a German language course before the beginning of the scholarship.
