A prerequisite for funding by means of a Finishing a University Degree scholarship is that the international students and doctoral candidates have performed well and are expected to successfully complete their studies within one year. Furthermore, scholarships for the completion of studies are intended to enable international students and doctoral candidates who are in need through no fault of their own to concentrate on their studies and to complete their studies.

Furthermore, employees of the state of Baden-Württemberg (e.g. scientific or student assistants, tutors) cannot receive a scholarship during their employment.
