Applicants must be enrolled in a study programme leading to a university degree. Students of all fields of study are welcome. Only requirements are fluency in English or Spanish, depending on the committee you choose, as well as a strong interest in the work of the UN.

International Scholarship FAQ
For being able to apply for a Scholarship, there are only two hard criteria: You need to be enrolled at a university or similar institution and you must not be older than 30 years.
In our selection process we will also take other criteria into account, as for example
The Scholarship Programme is divided up into three elements: Accommodation, Conference Fee Waiver and Travel Expenses. You can apply for any one element or any combination of them. We kindly suggest to you only to apply for as much as you really need, since we have only limited funds. We nevertheless wish and do our best to give as many students as possible the opportunity to join us at the conference. Thus, following this logic, applying for less support also enhances your chances of being awarded a scholarship, since it will be easier for us to fit you into our budget.
In any case you will have to pay yourself all costs concerning the visa, health insurance and transportation in your country of residence.
Unfortunately yes. We cannot support scholars with health insurance. It should very roughly be about 50€ or the equivalent in your currency.
In general, for most nationalities/home countries that we grant scholarships to, a tourist visa will be necessary to come to Germany. Please inquire the requirements for your specific case with the local German Embassy in time, at the latest once you are selected as a scholar. Please make sure you can comply with these requirements in case you are selected.
Please note that obtaining a visa in time is a crucial factor for your scholarship. If you are selected as a Scholar for MUIMUN 2017, we will ask you to book an appointment with your local embassy within a given timeframe and will agree together on a deadline for you to apply for and hand in your Visa. In the case any deadline or agreement is disregarded, we reserve us the right to deny the Scholarship.
If you have been a MUIMUN scholar once, you cannot apply again. If you did apply, but were not accepted to the programme, you can apply again and we encourage you to do so.
No, you do not have to register right now. After the selection process, we will ask chosen scholars to register. Please do not worry about the registration deadline.
You can download the application form and complete it in as many steps as you which. Please send in only the completed application form and the supporting documents.

Next Generation Programme FAQ
To be granted a scholarship you should ideally have English and/or Social Sciences on a higher level in school. What is really more important is your interest in international politics, especially the work of the United Nations and your motivation to take part in the conference.
The formal sessions will usually go from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We also offer social events each day. Although they are not obligatory to attend to, we really recommend you not miss them because the social events create the special MUN-feeling and you will get the chance to meet many people with various international backgrounds.
We will offer a working group which will meet every second week for an evening starting from the middle of January. It is not compulsory to take part in the working group but it will be a great help with your preparation. In case you do not take part at the working group, you should allow for at least 10 hours of “work” prior to the conference.
Yes, unfortunately the scholarship will only cover the fee for the conference itself, so you will pay for transportation yourself. However, if you have problems to get back and forth to Münster we are happy to help as much as we can!
