The International Relations Office has limited funds available for international students who need financial support at the end of their studies. Grants are awarded to international students based on social criteria, previous academic performance and previous financing of studies. The grants are awarded once per semester by a commission. They amount to a monthly payment of approximately €300 - €400 and are generally given for the lecture period of the current semester. Students who are registered or are planning to register for final examinations in the summer semester 2019 in a Bachelor, Master or Staatsexamen course of studies can apply. Applications have to be submitted between February 1 and March 14. For more detailed information (or help), see the notice board in the foyer (or contact your Studienberater).
Students with migration background in their 2nd to 4th semester are encouraged to apply for a summer school (17 August to 16 September 2019) in San Antonio, Texas, offered on behalf of the Trinity University Fulbright Commission. The grants include travel costs, accommodation on the campus, health insurance and the costs of the programme. Applications have to be submitted by the 4th of March 2019. For further information, see the display cases in the foyer and the Fulbright pages (www.fulbright.de/programs-for-germans/studierende-und-graduierte/diversity-initiative).
