Is there an age restriction?

Yes, you should be 18 years or older at the time of the conference.

How shall I prepare myself for the conference?

Information on how to prepare for the conference will be provided in the study guides for each committee. In addition, you may also ask the secretariat and committee staff for advice. In general it is helpful to inform yourself about the topics which will be relevant in your committee and to gather facts and knowledge about the country you represent. You will also need to prepare a position paper.

What is a position paper?

In general it is an essay presenting the opinion of your allocated country concerning the committee topics. It should highlight the importance of the issues at hand as well as past steps taken. Finally, the main focus of the paper should be propositions for further measures that in your country’s opinion should be taken in order to solve the issues.

What do I have to consider when I need a visa?

If you are from a country whose citizens are in need of visas, we advice you to apply for one as soon as possible since experience has shown that the application process may require some intensive preparation. If necessary, we can provide you with an invitation letter you can present to the German embassy. In case you have any further questions, please contact us at

International Scholarship FAQ

What qualifies me for a scholarship?

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:

  1. Socio-economic criteria such as family members, financial situation etc.
  2. Academic criteria such as grades, references, MUN experience (not absolutely necessary, we also want to explicitly encourage first-timers to apply!)
  3. Your specific motivation to participate in MUIMUN

What will be included in the scholarship? Which fees do I have to pay myself?

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.

Do I really have to pay for health insurance myself? How much will that cost?

Unfortunately yes. We cannot support scholars with health insurance. It should very roughly be about 50€ or the equivalent in your currency.

Will I have to get a visa? What are the requirements concerning the issuance of a visa?

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, 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.

Can I apply again after having applied/participated before?

Due to different circumstances this year, you can apply again if you have been a MUIMUN scholar in 2021. If you did apply, but were not accepted to the programme, you can apply again and we encourage you to do so. In any other case we must nitify you, that if you have been a scholar before others who have never received a scholarship will be favored, since you have already gotten the financial support while others didnt. We hope you can understand.

Do I have to register at the regular registration form?

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.

Do I have to submit the full application at once?

You can download the application form and complete it in as many steps as you wish. Please send in only the completed application form and the supporting documents. The reference form filled out by your reference person is expected to be sent in by the reference person before the end of the deadline. Please note, that the reference form is mandatory for a complete application. The deadline for Scholarship applications refers to complete applications.

Until when do I have to apply, and until when can I send in my documents?

The deadline is already over for applying for the scholarship.

Next Generation Programme FAQ

What qualifies me for a scholarship?

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.

How much time will the conference consume each day?

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 to 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.

How much preparation is needed in advance for a successful participation?

We will offer a working group which will meet every week for an evening. 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.

Do I have to bear the costs for transport myself?

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!
