I would suggest you write to them, and ask them all of your questions and concerns, seeing as they are the best suited to answer them correctly.You can contact them here http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… , or here http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Kind regardsElenaMladiinfo on May 18, 2011 at 3:56 pm By Yimin says: Log in to Reply Log in to Reply By mladiinfo says: Log in to Reply The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s.

What if you would like to pursue a course in german language the first year ( because me German is not that advanced to get into college) do you think they would pay for that too ( bc in the website they say: for students who know german or who are willing to take a course) ??? And since they give you founds up to 4 years in means they will reduce one year since you got into the language course for one year? Do you know how it works.Thnx againAll the best,Eve By mladiinfo says: Log in to Reply Hi ET, In my opinion you are no longer eligible, if you were already accepted to a university.

Best, Kristina,Mladiinfo on March 24, 2011 at 1:10 pm Hello, Mondi group did not answer me lately, I was asking in Georgian citizen can apply for scholarship? Best, G. By Obadina samson says: Log in to Reply Hi, Taulant, I have no more information about the program that you do. Mladiinfo is not in contact with Mondi. I’d say that you’d start from the first year, but maybe after discussion with your professors/tutors, they could recognize some of your courses you have taken back in your country. Just write that your envisaged degree is a Bachelor, which you are probably aspiring to – or is it a Master?So, you plan to obtain a Bachelor’s degree until the 89th July 2013 and as Elena already mentioned – describe what you want to learn and gain from the degree.

Thank You very much Hello Mattewos, So here are your answers: 1. it is fine, because you will be not older than 23 years upon the deadline. 2. One of the required documents you have to submit is the Application letter. I am not very sure if they actually don’t mean the “admission letter”, which would mean, you would already have to be admitted to a university. Therefore, I would encourage you to write with your enquiry to Mondi themselves: http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… You may find the list of Austrian universities for example here: http://www.mladiinfo.com/category/unis/austria/ or http://lmgtfy.com/?q=austrian+universities+master… And if YOU need any information, don’t hesitate to leave a comment here,I will be glad to reply. Good luck, Kristina,Mladiinfo on March 30, 2011 at 10:28 pm Hallo !Sorry to disturb you.I’d like to know if this great opportunity is this years also provided by Mondi ? If so I have some questions regarding the application procedure:– Do I have just to gather the documents required here and post them, and then if i get accepted Mondi will find me the University?? Or do I have to find a University by myself before making this application,..and fullfilling the reqired areas of the online application regarding that University and the study programs ? Thank you for the time and attention !Please reply me asap By mladiinfo says: The documents can also be sent by mail at the address stated.( I had a reply from Mondi) LinkedIn 0 Yes! Thank you very much, I think I’ll do what you suggested Log in to Reply Log in to Reply Log in to Reply Hi, Dren, well, the application is so stupid, I admit, as they don’t specify what actually you should upload.I would assume that probably a resume or an application letter (which is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as CV) or your personal motivation, as those serve as the first contact documents. Don’t forget to send all the other documents by post, there is little time, btw. There was a lively discussion about the objective of your studies just above, please, refer to it.

But I have only two questions, if you can please help me with them. I am now in the First Year of computer science, as i mentioned above. And my question is, “IF” I win this Scholarship, Must I start from the first year? Or the second year? Do you have any information about that? My second question: You told me to write about the curriculum and the Timeline, and I wanted to ask you, what does that ENVISAGED DEGREE mean? Do those two things (Timeline and Curriculum) go into the ENVISAGED DEGREE? Or should I write something else about the Envisaged degree? Again, thank you very much for your response, you helped me a lot.

I would advise you to be more persistent and send your questions to the Foundation until you get your reply. Regards,DijanaMladiinfo on March 9, 2013 at 3:14 pm By mladiinfo says: By Dokleata says: Log in to Reply Hi there, My concern is, will the successful candidates/applicants have the opportunity to tell Mondi that he/she wants to enrol in a particular university in Austria? Secondly, will “Mondi Austria Private Foundation” nominates a university for every candidates/applicants who are successful? Thidly, is it necessary to send paper application (Hard copy) by the postal address that is given, or applicants have to apply online and than send the paper application as well, what are they actually asking for? Fourth, Can the online application form be use to notify Mondi about your paper application when you have send it? Fifth, the online Application has a place called “Your Studies” that include “Name of institution, country of institution, city/town of institution, study field, and Academic Year/semester”. Are they asking for previous High school-leave details or they are asking for the field that an applicant is insterested in applying for at a recommended Universited in Austria when he/she is successful for the Grant of the scholarship? Sorry for taking up your time to ask all of these question, it’s much better to ask one time and do further reading. that’s whay I send it like boom. Thanks T-phil Hi Salil, Were you proficient in German upon applying to the University of Vienna? How is your study now? Dear Eve, Sorry, but this: “Advice and support for the scholarship holders in connection with visa, insurance, language courses and search for accommodation” does NOT imply what you said: “means you can spend one year studying german and you can use the money for living expenses + course” And on their website they say that “basic knowledge of the German language or willingness to attend German courses in Austria (proof of basic knowledge after two semesters)” is one of the selection criteria, nothing about financing the courses. So, I still arrived at the conclusion that I am not sure if they cover the costs of German courses.

I couldn’t find it anywhere. And I have no clue if they deduct the course period from the overall study period. But, you could also try to look for some English-conducted programs.

So my guess is that you don’t have to have the offer letter. But if I was you, I would write them directly! http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Secondly, application letter is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as CV.

Most of the times, granting scholarships is competitive, so it is quite possible that the Mondi group will compare your results with the other applicants.But if you are still not satisfied with my answer, please write directly to the Mondi group: http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Wishing you good luck, Kristina, Mladiinfo on January 31, 2011 at 8:25 am Log in to Reply Sorry but there is misunderstaning.i only send the online application & i recive message that says thank u & we consider ur appliction somthing like that.my question is what is next that can i do? on May 6, 2011 at 10:26 am Jel se dokumenti salju do 31. maja na navedenu adresu u Austriji?

Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Log in to Reply Hello again, http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Here they say that they offer you help in finding the language courses so practically it means you can spend one year studying german and you can use the money for living expenses + course ( I THINK, I don’t know anything for sure ) And here is where I read the statement “Basic knowledge of the German language (or willing to attend German courses).” Check it out http://www.scholarshipportal.eu/students/browse/s… All the best,Eve Log in to Reply on May 2, 2011 at 3:40 am Log in to Reply By mladiinfo says: Log in to Reply By Elena says: Hi, Taulant, so what I understand from it is:including curriculum – so what courses you are planning to take in what period – so, say, First semester – 6 courses (specify them according to your chosen university), Second semester – 6 courses – from, say 1st of September 2011 to 31 July 2012. Third semester … and so on. And say: “I am planning to finish my BSc by the 31st July 2013-14. This is what my common sense is telling me.

I have already been accepted to Vienna University of Technology for Software & Information Engineering bachelor programme. Am I eligible for the scholarship? on March 18, 2011 at 11:12 am Hi, I asked Mondi but nobody reply.Please ask for me! Thank you very much! Hi, I would like to know why when I submit the application form by online I see 2 files will be attached ?I am wondering what two files, could you tell me? Thank you so much! By Eve says: Hi, Indeed those are a lot of questions! Let’s do it:1st and 2nd: I really don’t know the answer to these questions. I would say yes, but there is nothing stated anywhere.3rd: yes. “Complete application documents must be received by the Austria Student Scholarship of the “Mondi Austria Private Foundation” by not later than May 31st.” to the address given in our post and with the documents referred.4th: I don’t understand what are you asking.5th: I would say they are asking for previous High school-leave details,a s it doesn’t make much sense that they are asking you in each country you would like to study. I suggest you to write them directly, they will give you more accurate answers, http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab…. Best regards, SofiaMladiinfo Hi, S.A., As mentioned earlier in the comments, I am really not sure if the South-Eastern Europe region may apply.Plus, you should be able to provide “proof of being eligible for admission to an Austrian university or a university in their respective country of residence”, which is your matura certificate, and are you sure you will have it by the deadline? 2. “Copies of transcripts.” – tvojite ocenki od shkolo, overenje so ocenkite. 3. 3. “Precise description of the objective of your studies (including curriculum, timeline and a description of the envisaged degree).”Objective means your future plan of study, what courses you are planning to take, how much time it will take to obtain your degree and so on. 4.” The application documents have to be sent in English or German”Do these has to be sent by post on this address:Mondi Austria Private FoundationGertraud MaxKelsenstrasse 7AT – 1032 , Vienna ?? Yes So please, try to write them first with your questions regarding the South-Eastern Europe region eligibility and if 4th graders can apply not having matura yet. Good luck, Kristina,Mladiinfo Log in to Reply Hello everyone!I have some questions.I’m interested if the information about tuition fees (where I’d like to apply) should be written in the Study Objectives?Second, I have read everything above concerning the Study Objectives. I also asked many people and I’m really confused! Some say, that it should only provide the info they are asking, very shortly, like a Form, something like this:City: University:Field of study: (including degree, program discription and curriculum)Period of study: (full-time or part-time and years)But some say it should be written like a letter, something like: “I would like to study this and that, because of this and that, in this city, university. I will study this subjects (here goes the program description I guess and the curriculum) and I intend to start my studies in year XXXX and finish in year XXXX.”So which one is the right one? I can’t decide… on May 19, 2011 at 10:31 am By John says: Share 0 Dear Anabana, ad 1: I don’t quite understand your first point, as the tuition fees have nothing to do with Study Objectives as such. I mean you can mention (probably in the motivation letter) that you are applying for the scholarship, as you cannot afford to bear the costs of tuition fees. ad 2: Well, I also don’t know which one is the right form, but why not make a compromise and merge it into one? So, at the top you could write an outlined one: City:University:Field of study: (including degree, program discription and curriculum)Period of study: (full-time or part-time and years) and below it you may add a letter-like explanation.

So basically in this part you explain your planned timeline and curriculum and add briefly why exactly you have chosen this program. I hope this helps. Best,Elena Hi. I would like to know how we should apply for a Mondi scholarship. 1.I mean do we have to have an offer letter from an Austrian university before applying for the scholarship? 2.And what is “Application letter”? I couldn’t understand this one. 3.And one more thing, where are all these documents supposed to be sent? Thank you.

Yet, without prior knowledge about German, you can still apply. A bachelor degree in Austria lasts for three years, while support from Mondi is 4 years. This means you can use your first one year in Austria devoted to language learning. – Travel expenses can be used for return flight ticket back to your home country. – Please contact Mondi by the email they provided since there might be some further notice you need to know. – Also, contact your desired university before applying for Mondi scholarship. This is a tip. Mondi will not help you much in finding your desired university. You all have to do this yourself. And be well-prepared since Mondi requires you to plan your future education here. – If you don’t know German, and the school’s website is only in German, try Google Translate. Hehe. Dear Mian, Please note that Mladiinfo does not give scholarships or any financial support, but only informs about different opportunities. Click on the direct link to the official page above to apply for the program. Besides, those are the rules of Mondi, I don’t think you can change it. Good luck with other scholarships, Kristina,Mladiinfo By mladiinfo says: And Salil, can I have your email?

And can i bring the documents to them directly while i’m in vienna now. Hi guys, Latest news from Mondi is that they also offer scholarship this year (2012) for studying in Austria. Those mates who got accepted in University of Vienna, can you share your experience? As far as I know, I have to know basic German to study there, yet they say it depends. I am wondering if I can do them both, I mean studying German and going to the Uni at the same time … This seems tough, yet I need to confirm. Log in to Reply Hi ET, Please, understand that Mladiinfo is not Mondi and therefore has no more information than is provided by them. There is no information about when they should announce the results, but usually the selection procedure takes from 1-3 months. Where? Well, it won’t be announced anywhere but you – if you gave them your details, so either they will get to you by e-mail or call or whatnot. Best, Kristina,Mladiinfo on February 25, 2012 at 10:57 pm Hi,This is Soumitra from India. I am very happy that I can apply for that scholarship. But I have some questions.1. I am doing here PhD in International Business, can I apply for the Phd degree in your university?2. If I apply the scholarship will be the same for undergraduate and phd scholar?3.

Proposals can originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in our funding decisions.Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes, films, travel, etc. Overhead is not allowed. Grants are normally for a one year period, though extensions may be applied for. Expect grants in this round are to be less than $4,000 in size, and to average about $2,000.EligibilityResearchers and language activists from any country are eligible to apply.

This information may continue on the next page.DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECTBeginning on a separate page, provide a description of the project. This should normally take two pages, single spaced, but the maximum is five pages. Be detailed about the type of material that is to be collected and/or produced, and the value it will have to the native community (including relatives and descendants who do not speak the language) and to linguistic science. Special consideration will be given to projects that involve children. Give a brief description of the state of endangerment of the language in question.BUDGETOn a separate page, prepare an itemized budget that lists expected costs for the project. Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes, films, travel, etc. Overhead (indirect) costs are not allowed. Estimates are acceptable, but they must be realistic. Please translate the amounts into US dollars. List other sources of support you are currently receiving or expect to receive and other applications that relate to the current one.LETTER OF SUPPORTTwo letters of support are recommended, but not required. These can be included in the electonric file or sent separately. Note that these letters, if sent separately, must arrive on or before the deadline (April 21st, 2011) in order to be considered.

I wonder whether you will shortly be holding another round of application. Over the past 15 years, I have been researching the Acholi language, mainly spoken in Northern Uganda but with similarities with other Nilotic languages spoken in Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The language has not been fully written and with the 24 years of war that has just ended, the means of propagation namely the elders and other speakers have been depleted. Moreover, the war that raged in the area lead to further mis-interpretation of the cultures (a basis for the fluency in the language) as you might have seen in the activities of the Lord’s resistance Army, a party in the conflict. Please let me know whether you would be interested in sponsoring my study of ‘The Structure of Acholi Language.’ Recently I self-published Acholi Proverbs, following my earlier publication of ‘Acholi for beginners.’ It is a language I am passionate about and would like it preserved.
