Special interests of the fellows will be taken into consideration in the choice of hosting centres. The sponsorship also includes: an economy class air ticket, food and accommodation, travel expenses within Germany and an allowance up to a maximum total of EUR 2,500 per fellow.

The two candidates were selected by the Board of Examiners at the end of the SICOT Diploma Examination which took place on 24 August 2008. Besides an excellent exam, good knowledge of the English language is the main selection criterion.
