Prize

The prize consists of three scholarships consisting of EUR 1000, which will be received by each of the 3 winners. The winners will receive the prize by direct bank transfer onto his/her bank account within 30 days. The prize can be subject to personal or prize tax depending on local tax regulation. The winners will each receive EUR 1.000, including income tax, if any, which the winners may be required to pay, up to a maximum amount of EUR 500. The total prize amount therefore cannot exceed EUR 1.500 to each of the 3 winners. JACK & JONES are in no way responsible for the actual payment of income tax by the winners, as it is the 3 winners sole responsibility. Example: The additional payment will be calculated as the standard income tax rate for students in the winner's country of residence applied to the EUR 1000 cash prize. E.g. if a winner resides in a country with a 26 % tax rate, the total amount paid to the winner will be 1.351 EUR calculated as 1000 EUR + (1000/(1-0,26)) = 1000 + 351 = 1351 EUR.
