All students, regardless of their nationalities and field of study, enrolled in a university, can apply to receive the Idealo scholarship. Grades play a secondary role in the scholarship selection process. Idealo is looking for students who stand out from their peers through their exceptional talent and passion.

- Volunteer engagement: If you actively invest yourself in helping people in need and have a passion for social action, you fit the profile sought by the Idealo scholarship.
- Programming precocity: If you developed your first application at a young age, demonstrating an early passion for programming and technology, you are also the kind of person the Idealo scholarship program aims to support.
- Mastery of calculations: If you are a true whiz with numbers, capable of solving complex calculations faster than the fastest calculators, you stand out for your expertise and potential, which align with the Idealo scholarship’s selection criteria.
- Entrepreneurial spirit: If you have had brilliant ideas and started your first startup during your teenage years, the Idealo scholarship program is interested in your entrepreneurial spirit and innovative capabilities.
- Environmental commitment: If you are convinced that we can contribute to making the world more sustainable and actively engage in environmental initiatives, the Idealo scholarship program encourages your commitment and wants to support you in your journey.
