6. Admitted – Next Steps

Admitted applicants will receive a letter of admission by e-mail and, upon request, by post. Any admission is only valid for the academic year for which the application was made.

As a certain number of admitted applicants will decide not to study at the MIPLC for various reasons, we will admit more applicants than we can accommodate. This means that admission does not yet guarantee participation. To secure a spot in our program, admitted applicants must complete, sign, and return an Agreement with the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition and transfer a non-refundable guarantee payment of EUR 3,000 (three-thousand) to the MPI's bank account within four weeks after admission. This payment will be applied against the first installment of the participation fee.

We understand that some of our applicants require financial assistance before they can commit to attending the program and are unable to make the guarantee payment within the specified period. Such applicants may defer accepting admission until the fee waiver scholarships have been allocated. They will keep their admission but will be moved to "participation pending" status, which means that, after the deadline for the guarantee payment has passed, their spot might be given to another student.

Waiver applicants who decide to make the guarantee payment to secure their spot are welcome to do so. They are, however, reminded that this payment is non-refundable. Making the guarantee payment neither increases nor decreases chances of receiving a scholarship. Dropping out of the program at a later point, e.g. for lack of funding, will thus result in forfeiture of the guarantee payment.
