The first selection of fellowship grants has taken place, which resulted in a selection of students for Master’s courses and Short Courses, divided over all partner countries. In general, we can conclude that the applications for fellowships are of good quality and all have been selected. From some countries, we received more applications than from others, which makes an equal allocation over the participating countries difficult. The current selection system in our online tool Atlas does not allow us yet to take into consideration the country budgets.
