Grants & Scholarships
DAAD STIBET Programme
Through the DAAD STIBET Programme, HFU can offer a limited number of scholarships every year.
Studienabschlussbeihilfen are scholarships which offer financial assistance to students during the period when they are sitting their final exams. Stipendien mit Betreuungsleistung are scholarships which stipulate that recipients work for approximately 2-4 hrs/wk at the International Center assisting other international students. For further information on application procedures and the award process, please contact the International Center.
Germany Scholarships (Deutschlandstipendien)
A small number of "Germany Scholarships" are sometimes available for both German and non-German undergraduate students who have achieved outstanding academic results. Applications are accepted once a year at the end of the summer semester and the scholarships are awarded by a committee selected by the university senate. The Ministry of Education website contains more information about Germany Scholarships.
Please note: If Germany Scholarships are currently being awarded, detailed information will be given below.
