The fellows will be selected by an international jury. The decision will be announced following the jury meeting, which will take place shortly after the end of the application period. The jury’s decision is final and incontestable.


The selected fellows take part in an introductory week in Wuppertal at the beginning of their fellowship. In the following year, they return to Wuppertal to present their experiences in individual formats and thereby officially conclude their fellowship. In 2022, the introductory week will take place from the 29th of August until the 4th of September 2022.
