Important information concerning eXebs fellows who already receive financial support through the eXebs Bildungsfonds: You don’t have to hand in all the financial documents, you just have to hand in a signed explanation that your financial situation has remained the same.
Important information concerning students who plan to apply for the eXebs Bildungsfonds: The documents you have to hand in for the Citi Scholarship are the same you have to hand in when applying for the eXebs Bildungsfonds. So it probably would make sense to apply for both scholarships at the same time.
