You are in the right place if you are a recognised refugee and study full-time at a state or state-recognized university in Germany for your first degree or will begin your studies in the next semester. We support all subjects.
Regardless of the scholarship, all scholarship holders receive a monthly lump sum for study costs of 300.00 euros. In addition, scholarships are calculated in accordance with the guidelines of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research based on the Federal Education Promotion Act (BAFöG). In contrast to BAföG, the scholarships do not have to be repaid.
We also grant subsidies for studying abroad for a maximum of 12 months.
Funding is initially granted for one year. Then you can apply for extensions every year until you graduate.
The minimum funding period is two semesters at the time the scholarship begins. The maximum funding period depends on the standard period of study according to BaföG and ends with the last examination.
The scholarships are awarded in accordance with the guidelines and with funds of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (link in German).
