The grants range from 1500 euros to 4500 euros. The grants and their values will depend on the number of applicants and the level of applicant’s studies.

A short free-form application to the grant committee should describe the applicant's specialization in bridge engineering, structural engineering or building physics and the applicant's academic performance as well as the applicant's contact information (name, email address and telephone number). The applicant is asked to mention in the application whether the emphasis of applicant’s studies has been on “bridge engineering” or “structural engineering and building physics”.
