Completion Grant for International Students

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 winter semester 2021 in a Bachelor, Master or Staatsexamen course of studies can apply. Applications can be submitted from July 22nd to September 3rd. For more detailed information (or help), see this document (English version) or contact your Studienberater.
