Why are the calls and the scholarship information ("Merkblatt") only available in German ?

Please understand that the official language at the Charité is German, and thus used in conjunction with the Charité scholarship program, which contains a number of binding legal terms and phrases.

We recognize and encourage the international character of research done at the Charité. Thus, please feel free to submit your proposal and, if invited, to give your oral presentation in either German or English, whichever you feel more comfortable in. For oral presentations, we ask you to see to it that the laguage spoken matches that used on your slides.

We are looking forward to your application!
