Application information

ISTScholar is the PhD program of IST Austria. To apply you have to create an online account, which will allow you to track your application through its various stages.

You do not need to complete the application process in one session. You can return to your account and save your application as often as you like, up until you are ready to submit.

Step 1: Create an account

Register online by entering your e-mail and choosing a password. You will receive an e-mail with a link to finalize the registration of your user account immediately.

Step 2: Enter application data

There are five parts to your application. Make sure that you press "Save" each time before moving on to a different section! When you leave a page without having saved it, your data will be lost and you will have to re-enter it.

Step 3: Submit your application

Ensure that your application is complete and correct before submitting. Once you have submitted your application, you will not be able to make further changes. The submission deadline is January 8, 2016 11:59 PM CET. Referees need to submit their recommendations by January 15, 2016 23:59 PM.

IST Austria will only process complete and submitted applications; all others will not be reviewed.
